A little Sunshine

Bernies Sunshine, born today at Bernhardts Family Farm in SW OH. 
Another "grandchild" from a first time lamber.  So far they are getting along
well together.  She is a bit of sunshine after a long, dark and stormy week.  
Seeing pictures of these babies makes me feel less lonely for the flock.

Today's show results

Enjoyed the double angora specialty put on by the Ohio Angora Rabbit Fanciers club at the Hall of Fame show in Canton, OH today. We had a nice showing of Satin Angoras. 15 total with 3 exhibitors. There were 6 whites - yay!

In Show A, Teton was BOSV colored SR buck, and Santee was BOV and BOS, colored SR doe.
In Show B, Driftwood was BOV, colored JR doe, Shaelah was 1st CSD of 4, and Silverheels was BOSV, colored SR buck.

Congrats to Ann Mary Mercier for BOB in both shows!

Both judges commented that they really loved Driftwood and would like to see her again in a couple months when she has more time to develop. :^)

My "grandma" brag

Got a message from some friends in SW Ohio that one of the BFL ewes they bought from us in 2015 had her first lambs.   What a beautiful pair!   (the silver ram lamb will be for sale - get in line!)  

Oh great - some new hosta eaters have arrived

The new fawns are starting to arrive.    We have a love/hate relationship going.  The deer love to eat our flowers, and we hate it.  L...
