If I get a chance to visit a Shetland herd, I don't ask a bunch of questions, I just go. I got a chance to do just that a couple weeks ago when we went to Indiana to pick up 2 LDG's from Gail Former and spend some time at Jeff and Theresa Gygi's house. The guys wandered off to do guy stuff, hauling hay, cutting/splitting wood (el yucko) and that left Theresa, Tori and I free to play with the sheep. What a great way to spend a day,.....catching sheep, picking out favorites, and discussing all things fiber. I was properly impressed by the set up that Theresa has for processing, dyeing, carding, felting, weaving, and spinning fleece. I was green with envy over the talent that she has to have in order to produce such fabulous finished projects. I got a few shots of the Gygi girls (adult ewes), so here they are..........
That which angers us, controls us.
