  It is so fun to see all the babies on the farm! Every time I pass the barnyard the goat kids are tearing around the place playiing together. The lambs are so sweet too. I caught one of them yesterday just jumping up and down in place as happy as can be. Don't you just love spring!

  So far I have three lambs this spring with one more ewe left to go. God's creation is amazing and it is such a blessing to be entrusted with the care of it! All three lambs have dark beautiful black and brown wool which will be so much fun to spin.

I have been looking at sheep as we want to have our own wool. How is the wool on Icelandic sheep?

  Hey Hannah!
Thanks for the comment! I have Saxony ducks. They are a fantastic breed in all respects. Good meat, good eggs, Hardy (as ducks go) against predators, and exceptional foragers. I have one drake and 2 females that serve one purpose and one purpose only...SLUGS! They leave no leaf un-turned. Eggs may be a bonus later on, they're too young yet. I have never tried duck eggs but I hear they are amazing for baking?! Ducks are so much fun, I highly reccommend them!

  Yep, we render the tallow from beef fat--it's kind of smelly so we do it outside. If your interested, we talk a little more about soap-making on our wordpress blog:

  Hey!
Hey Hannah - thanks for the comment (Pleasant Hill Farm)! We make our own soap base from tallow and lye, re-mill that after curing, and then add fragrances. It takes several days to go through the whole process - but it's lots of fun. I see you are a spinner and knitter - are you on Ravelry? If so, I am claypottery12

  This afternoon I'm going to learn how to dye my wool with cool-aid. I'm so excited! Its a good thing too because I have 4 raw fleeces waiting in the garage and 5 fleeces almost ready at the mill.
