Not quite two years ago we acquired Betsy and Bitsy, ewe sisters from up in North Carolina. I found them on craigslist, the woman was seemingly losing her farm and the fact that they were Border Leicester/Cotswold crosses seemed intriguing as I just knew they'd have pretty fleece. They were grossly overweight from being fed mostly grain. We brought them home, put them on nice pasture on a hillside for lots of exercise and cut out their grain. They have thrived They really are dolls and I adore their lovely curly fleece. I'd dyed a bucket load of it in the winter but had gotten busy and set it aside. I fluffed some up yesterday.
