Byland's Jericho -- For Sale. JSBA registered.

Jericho is a real sweetie! Because I use portable netting to graze my land, I've kept a halter on him. I catch him and I can lead him, tie him, shear him or haul him. He's had 3 crops of lambs for a total of 7. His son FarmGirl's Calvin has sired two lambs this year. Jericho's ewe lambs have done very well at SAFF (Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival): firsts and thirds out of large ewe lamb classes. He has 4 very symmetrical horns and the nice black spots on his knees and ankles. Each of his eyes has a stripe of blue near the bottom of the pupil.

Jericho has been tested for Tay-Sachs and is negative: G444R-/-

My previous posts has photos of his two ram lambs from this year.

Jericho must go to a good home.    $250.00    336-971-3834 or  farmgirlarts[at]gmail.com

FarmGirl's Levon and Shenanigans! (Perfect Spot Chelsea x Byland's Jericho)

This is Levon. He looks just like his dad, Jericho. What a fleece!!

This is Shenanigans. He is quite frisky. His bone structure is finer than Levon's.

Look at this fleece!!!

FarmGirl's Lilith (Patchwork Paris x Swan Valley Kingsley)

This is Paris' first time lambing. Lilith required a tiny tug on her front legs and then she slid right out.

She has a smile and a special dot on her nose! The way her eyes are set reminds me of her dad, Kingsley.

Paris is such a good mother. She even lifts her back leg to make it easy for Lilith to grab a nipple.

Dog Portrait: Bryn (chow/collie mix)

This was a gift to a teenage daughter on her birthday from her parents. Was fun to work on this dog because I know everyone! Looking at the photos today, if I could change anything it would be to add more hair around the head/neck area.

Left ear up, right ear down.

Several layers of dog hair carded in with dyed Suffolk wool to get the dual coat look and texture.

Funky tail curl over the back and darker shorter hair on back.

Tail and underside have longer fluffy hair.

This is Bryn in real life.

Panther on the Prowl

My son attends Paisley International Baccalaureate Middle School. I sculpted this panther to benefit the school's Fine Arts Night fundraiser. I hope someone will like him enough to buy him to support the school!
