Susan's Spectacular Spin-In

.



Susan had a fabulous "Spin-in and Farm Warming" party this past weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect!






We all spun either out doors or on the screened porch - I think there was a total of 31 of us! We all had a fabulous view of the field with the sheep, lambs, and alpacas were grazing - it was the PERFECT setting!


Check out all these wonderful wheels and spinners on the porch...



















And in the yard...








































Off an on, someone was in the house spinning, but for the most part, we enjoyed the fresh air and the perfect Spring weather.






Here's the view we had the entire afternoon. It was very calming and serene. The sky was so blue and the fields so green....you just couldn't help but revel in the beauty and peace that surrounded you!


And now for the animals.....

Susan's sheep had 7 lambs this year - some are just under a week old and others about 9 days old. The oldest lamb is 5 weeks old. Aren't they precious?












I even got to hold and cuddle one one of the little lambs! Isn't this little lamb the most precious thing you've ever seen?





Here's a shot of Gracie. The mom and lamb are very special to Susan - you might even say they're favorites. The lamb is a bit older than the rest - she's 5 weeks old.


The Border Collies had some fun as well - they played for a while.




















One of them even when into the sheep pen to demonstrate sheep herding skills. It was fascinating to watch. My favorite "dog scene" had nothing to do with the sheep herding...it was watching them play frisbee. Check out how the youngest pup "twirls" around near the beginning of the video. Talk about full of energy!

It was the PERFECT day - beautiful weather, a wonderful view, fabulous company, and delicious food. There was even some fantastic home made bread and stuffed shells....unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of those goodies, but trust me...it was delicious!




Ah.....this is the life. It really doesn't get any better than this!

Many thanks to Susan for being such a fabulous hostess!
