They are so sweet. They're the ideal farm animal I think. No, we don't eat them. But we do harvest their beautiful fiber once a year usually in the early spring. Then they are cool all summer and start getting some length on their coats towards fall.
One of the things they really like in the summer time is when I get out the hose and squirt their feet and legs. Sometimes one will get so happy he will stick his entire head in the stream of water, open his mouth and get a nice cold drink. All I have to do is head towards the water faucet and they are there.
I have some new ideas for this year as far as using the natural colors of my animals. I hope they turn out as I imagine them.
