I know, I know... I said we were going in alphabetical order but sometimes circumstances dictate change. Today's herd member is Sienna. She has been quite frail for the 5 years she has lived with us. Due to current health problems, she got moved to the front of the line .So...
Sienna is almost 18 years old. She has been a handful from the start. What a lovely, sweet girl she is! Sienna doesn't mind people but she really LOVES children. A couple boys were visiting the farm. When they walked into the girls pen, Sienna gravitated to the younger one. He wrapped his arms around her neck and squeezed her in a hug. Sienna leaned down to "kiss" him on top of the head. So he hugged her again and told her "I love you!".
Sienna has a lovely red colored fiber. It is extremely soft despite her age. Length has always been a problem so instead of traditional yarn, we opt for a corespun yarn from her fiber. This wonderful lightweight infinity scarf was made from about 30 yards of Sienna corespun yarn. Thanks for the years, Sienna!
