Spring and Lambs in Western Massachusetts

April 21, 2011

One of the things I like most about our new state is that we are only a few towns away from Sheepgal, the Shelburne Shepherd. Lambing season has just ended and she always shares lovely pictures and videos of the little ones on her blog.

Last fall, I had a chance to visit the farm for an open house, and got to meet several of her wonderful animals.

You should check out these pictures of the last 2011 lamb, Crispin (all the lambs were named after apple varieties this year) and while you are there, you can enter a giveaway for some wonderful Foxfire Fiber yarn.

You might just get addicted to her blog, like me.
