Greencastle Fiber Event

Mud, rain, snow, rain and more snow. Were WI last month. Now it is May things can get sunny. The mud is starting to dry up and we have not had any rain yet this month. The grass is starting to grow, a little and I have enough hay for 3 more weeks now.

This year I went to Greencastle, IN Fiber Event for the first time. I've never been to the southern part of IN and the top part was boring, and flat. Greencastle area is really nice. It was somewhat hilly and there were quite a few trees. I don't think there were quite as many lakes and ponds as where I live in WI. I had a great time! I got to visit the Gygis and see all of their sheep. Wow, Theresa's "culls" are nicer or as nice as most of my "inbetween grade" sheep!! She has a very nice set up too. I showed a couple fleeces at the Fiber Event.
