Long time no Post...

Hi everyone!  I know it has been a while.  I have been checking in on occasion to read what you all are up to, but have had little time to write or comment.  I hope you all haven't forgotten about me.  I was reading the NASSA News this month and saw that a Mapleton ram did quite well for himself in New England, and I was pleased.  I also saw my new ram's triplet brother did well in the Mid-Atlantic.  It gave me pause to think what lambs may be getting ready to hit the ground here in April crossing those two lines.  I realize I had let things get the best of me and was selling my flock short in a way, ready to be out of it.  Maybe I have to just find a happy medium and keep what I am doing but on a smaller scale, because it is rewarding, fun, and I have put together what I think is a special group of Shetlands in my flock.  I am most excited about the UK sires that will have influence on my lamb crop this season.  ABA Lava is an F1 Drum Jings.  I used one F2 Heights Orion ram, and have four equally as handsome ones out in my pasture.  So I will have some wonderful yearling rams for sale this spring, a few adult ewes, fiber wethers, and a good chunk of the lamb crop.  So without futher ado, how about some photos of the adults as a preview of the lambs to come this spring:
