Baa, Baa, Black Sheep Have You Any Wool?

Yes, I dare say she has three bags full.

Shirley is a bit of a full-figured sheep. So much so she sometimes has difficulty fitting through the gates around here.DSC_8982

“Laverne, is she calling me fat?” she asked.

“I thought Shetlands were supposed to be fine-boned?” I replied.

“I’m fluffy damn it. Really, really fluffy.”

“Okay, okay, don’t go getting’ your wool in a wad.”

Look at those legs, I would say she looks fine boned from here. And fine fleeced too. Just beautiful, almost makes me want to spin, almost.

If she gets her wool in a wad does that mean it's felted? It might make a difference to us spinners...Just saying! (She's too cute)
