Katniss


Through the generosity of her buyer (who gave her back to Lena) Katniss came home from the Buckwheat Festival.  During the weeks of her quarantine we have discovered that
  • she is quite the escape artist (this involved an injured leg and trip to the vet),
  • she can wear a path along a fence line in no time flat
  • she has a very great need to be a member of a flock (well, don't we all?)
On Saturday, we mucked out and cleaned out the barn preparing for winter and for fall shearing.  Early that morning, Katniss finally got to join the ewe lambs in the pasture.  She was so excited at first she wasn't sure whether to eat or get to know all her new sisters.  By Sunday afternoon, she had fit right in.

  1. Beautiful colors, the trees, the autumn-grass, the light and the peaceful sheep.
