Lavender surprised us with a lamb- a baby ewe! She is 9 lbs- a very nice size!
She is adorable.
Here is Joanna helping her to latch on.
Here are the boys- Sherman (in front) is the proud father. He's waiting for a cigar!
This is what MY Dad does while this is all going on- he hides in his woodshop!
Here is the baby-still unnamed...lying in the grass, SOOOOOO cute!
This is one of the paintings of the day-
And this is the portrait of Nicole- commission ( thanks Nicole's Mom!)
Nicole came as the sheep shearer and ended moving into a tent on the property, she now lives in town. She is doing her thesis on agricultural community of the Hamakua district, at UH-Manoa ( Owahu)
Nicole is, simply put , THE BEST. One of those people you meet and love immediately.
I hope I captured her natural beauty!
