William and Wool

So today our grandson William and his parents came for a visit.  He rode the quad like usual, this time with his father.

Tom answered his questions about the tractor.  On this visit, though, he showed more interest in some of the animals, especially the chicks.  So that was nice.  The weather was thankfully reasonable for the visit, but the mud was plentiful.

Steve seemed to enjoy the visit too.

Other than the visit and chores, I was able to look at more wool.  I decided to re-photograph the first three fleeces with my nicer camera to show the colors better.  So here is Bambam again:

Here is Jewel again:

Plus I was able to look at some other fleeces.  Unfortunately only only is worthy of selling.  It belonged to Miss Lizzie.  It is soft with minimal VM.  Her wool is somewhat jumbled with short staple and small.  It weighs 1# 12 oz and is for sale for $21.
