Fall is in the air...

The nights are cooling off, back to school ads have started, and here in NY you know summer is almost over when the NY State Fair, that is the 10 days preceding...ending on Labour Day, promos are on the radio non stop.  So now is the time to think about our breeding groups and you yours.  If you are still in search for a good ram we still have some available...

 Father and son pictured above:  Swiftriver Neville F1 is sold but his handsome F2 HST sons are still for sale.  Peep's above and Carmel's below.  Excuse the bare paddock...they really do have pasture with electronet but they had come in for the evening.
 The polled boys...one is staying here and the other is sold.  SOOOOO soft and crazy crimpy when you part their fleece!
 No question about this ram lambs horned genetics.  Dessie and Zeus' son is very handsome and correct.  Fleece length will be longer intermediate, has luster, and nice crimp coming in at the skin.  very soft handle as well other than the burdocks he and all the rams were able to find!  AND GREAT HORNS!
 Can Too Sky will be in a breeding group this fall.  Color opinions?  Moiget mom, registered as moorit.  Most likely will be in Neville's breeding group....I think I will give him all the adult ewes this fall before he leaves.
 I also still have some really beautiful ewe lambs for sale in moorit and black, three different sires.  All could carry spots even though they are not loudly spotted themselves. 
 So our days escaping to the lake might be over:

 Time to begin harvesting the fruits of our labour:
 The pigs are getting big:
 Chickens laying about 2 eggs a day, just enough for us.  I don't think I could bring myself to buy grocery store eggs.
 Finn maturing into a wonderful dog!  Lucy still adjusting but out from under the couch now that there is only one pup to try to avoid.  Hey not the garden! 
Garden fall crops have been planted...need to get in and do some more weeding and find something to do with all that squash!  Everything else coming in slowly but surely.  The recent rainfall has really perked everything up out there, including the lawn and pastures.  Time to knit some hats which means I need to get going and spin the yarn I want to use.  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  I have enjoyed it but I really do love the fall most of all!
