The new year is upon us and no doubt it will fly by just as fast has it snuck up. We have been waiting in expectation for the blustery cold winter weather to arrive and to our surprise it's been very mild and pleasant. I call that a blessing! With the adventure of moving and taking on animals, it has been a much needed break from the standard freezes and occasional snows. Not sure what lyes in wait for us around the corning but we are taking advantage of the warmth for now.
I am already in the beginning stages of preparation for this year. Calling local farms for advice on processing wool and getting a shearer. I love how open and helpful farmers are to guide the ignorant ones through dozens of questions and that's an understatement.There will be up coming fiber festivals to check out, baby lambs arriving, shearing, updating website and I'm most positive troubles. I have given myself a mind set to be prepared for the hard situations and to take to heart this life is a learning experience. But boy do I hope in the back of my mind and heart that all goes smooth with occasional bumps.
I hope you will join us in learning more about these wonderful Icelandic sheep, love on our new lambs and invest your time. It would be our joy to have you along on this ride and be in prayer with our family. Weather you respond to our blogs, give us calls/texts of support/inquires or just come on out and hang with us. We would welcome all and any who want to be apart of this crazy Aurora Skala Ranch adventure.
Love the Boothe Family
