That's a problem that I see with our world - most people don't want to look at photos of old wrinkled people, teenagers with pimples, overweight women.... you know - the list goes on and on. My friend Louise has a blog called "Lines of Beauty." It is about graceful aging. Check it out if you can. Lovely stories about getting older. And here's a 93 year old grandma with some real style. What a sparkle in her eyes.
For today's post, I'm sharing some photos of the girls. The ewes are the mainstay of our flock and they are what makes the farm go around - besides my handsome, overworked husband who loves his sheep and doesn't have time to shave. And how do you like the down jacket patched with duct tape. It's a look.
(If anyone has an old man's down jacket sitting in a closet which will never be used again, donations for barn jackets accepted. Coats lead a hard life here and by the end of this season, this one will probably be covered in duct tape. It's hard for me to find old ones and I don't want to spend $ on something that will be trashed. Size XL. Color and style doesn't matter. Just needs to be warm. email me - kristinnicholas AT gmail DOT com and I will give you our address.)
Enjoy the weekend everyone. Going to be super cold here - way below zero. Good thing lambing has slowed right down. The sheep and lambs will be fine - they have wool coats on!
