At last!!! The ongoing project of 5 years is complete!!! UPDATE: Pictures
Guess what my parents brought me home last night? :D A Shep. A Shep the Sheep actaully (A joke - sheep bothers me. It's both plural and singular, so NOW... a single is a Shep and plural is Sheep).



I am so happy!!! We aren't quite sure what breed he is, but he has such soft fuzz! He's about 8 months old they think (rescued animal and then puppy for lamb trade). He's never been shorn... My mom's best friend is going to teach me how to do that.

I am soooo excited!!

(Twas slightly humorous.... Mom and Dad were play (fake) betting each other what I would say when I saw Shep. Mom said "Look at how much yarn that is!!!" "Look at the staple length!" "Do you see all those gloves?!?" "do you feel how silky soft he is?" And Dad said, "The first thing she says is going to be about the fleece." So when they pulled in the drive way, I ran up to them and started undoing straps and tie downs to get his cage open. I saw him and pulled him out of the cage.... (Oh, he is a bottle baby and SO friendly!!! :D) and I just stood there, staring for a moment. LOL It was a "oh wow" moment. At which point I started rubbing his fur, nay, my fiber *evil laugh* and thought to myself "What a beautiful sheep! What a GORGEOUS fleece!!" I guess I repeated the last part again because dad just started laughing. When I got him out in the barn and finally stopped touching him, I went inside (please note that it was 28* last night with a wind that knocked you around. And mom was kinda mad cuz I was out there in a thin sweater.... And um, I didn't have a hat or gloves on.... ) and mom started cracking up, and listing all the things I had thought or said, and all of them were true except the staple length. But I have to admit I did try to figure out how you could measure staple length without removing any fuzz. LOL Oh yeah, he is this gorgeous cream white!! His face is brown/black but the rest of his body is creamy white. :D

And now you have heard more than you EVER wanted to know about Shep. :D
