We had a special guest this weekend...this lovely little week old bottle-baby from A Rare Breed farm. She's a Black Welsh Mountain ewe-ette. Andrea was out at a grazing conference, so I got to babysit! She hung out in the shop most of the day Saturday with me and the dog, and seemed quite interested in learning to spin, actually sleeping at my feet next to the wheel for a bit.

I didn't realize till I looked at the photo that she's sitting down next to yarn made from a mix of Black Welsh Mountain fleece and Romney.

I was so enamored by the experience, that I googled "sheep as housepets" and found this. Okay, maybe not such a good idea.
