Dramatic weather day between shearing days

by Jane Levene on 06/15/12

Hi all,  it's been a very busy few weeks here.  We sheared most of the animals in Salida end of May, then followed with shearing the herd the first weekend of June, then Estes Park Wool Market, and now finishing up with about one and a half more days in Salida.  Its' all gone very well, tremendous excitement over the PVs and the fleece and products.  So on the right track!  I've put a photo of the farm today, impressive sky.  But not much rain, considering we were clobbered last week by a storm of near-biblical proportions. Hail, buckets of rain and lightning that would not stop for even a minute, lasting 2 hours.  Biggest rain storm of my life.  Now blizzards- we seen bigger!  Once I get all the fleeces together, I will sort and grade and get them to the mill ASAP.  Babies are coming about 2-3 weekes late so far this spring.  Will post photos as soon as we get a few more on the ground.  Take care, and hope the weather treats you all well.  Jane
