A Little Itch

This is Betsy, one of the Corriedale X Border Leicester ewes we got from a woman in North Carolina who was losing her farm.  Betsy and her sister, Bitsy, were tremendously overweight and we have been concerned about their health.  They had seemingly been fed mostly on grain with very little hay in their diet.  When they arrived here we switched them over to hay with only a small handful of grain as a daily treat.  They have lost some weight and are becoming more active.

Betsy seems to have had an itchy back and found a good solution up under the edge of a picnic table.  She contentedly scratched up under the table for quite some time.  And before long those lovely locks she is growing will be mine to spin!
