After the Dyeing...

Pretty regal, in homely sort of way, huh?  This Cashgora ewe was a great model.  I was able to take abundant head shots.   After we dyed all the available fiber we could find in the dye shed, Mary, of Fancy Fibers, took us on a brief, as it was a cool 100 degrees outside, tour of the farm.  This Cashgora is one of the herd below that Mary acquired from Terri B. who was getting out of the goat business.

The smaller three on the right are a set of triplets.  I think their fiber will be delicious colors.

Mr. Rooster, here, is king of the hen house.  He shows no agression but keeps a careful eye on his girls.
Having had my time in the farm/ranch world when we did horses in a big way, I can appreciate all the work that goes into keeping Mary's farm running.  AND, I am so glad to be able to say, "loved seeing your place, gotta run!"


  1. Beautiful pictures of the animals! Yes, I can appreciate that you've already had your "time in the barrel" !! Now it's my turn! At least when I talk to you about it all, your eyes don't glaze over and I don't have to explain the terminology!

  2. Georgeous photophraphy....the rooster is spectular....sounds like a fun day....
    Hugs and blessings

  3. Love the pics, great job! I am so glad that you had such a great time, yesterday. Sorry, that I had to miss it.
    However, I am wanting to see what you dyed up.
