Shetland Sheep = Shetland Yarns!

 This weekend Fancy Tiger has these young rams from Piñon Wood Ranch. Their owners came along too, with lots of lovely handspun yarns! They keep alpacas as well, so  there were alpaca blends in a rainbow of natural colors and some bright ones too! Shetlands I'm told, come in 11 different natural colors.
Shetlands are bread to be small, so these guys are almost full grown, a perfect size for house pets don't ya think? They were very friendly, and Jamie and Amber of Fancy Tiger had no problem giving them a walk around the block. Even their poop is small and cute. (Remind me of that when I'm mucking, please.) They will be there all day today, fortunately sheep are well equipped to handle cold rainy weather. Go visit so you can squee! And pick up some awesome yarns while you're at it...
