I just realized that this summer it has already been two years since we were given two of our most affectionate sheep, Blanche and Stella, by our friend and farmer, Eugene Wyatt, of Catskill Merino Sheep Farm.  We still think of them as the new babies of our bunch.  They were rejected by their mothers when born, so were "bottle babies" and good ones for us to take to a new home and flock.  We had to think fast when we got the call that we could come pick them up---finding a printer box in the attic that would safely transport them home.

Here is a short video I made at the time, announcing our new additions to friends and family.

The time has passed so quickly.
