Spring time in California

We've had a wonderful, wet winter, the grass is already tall and rich and all the springs have been replenished and the ponds are full. We got our brandings done early this year so the calves have had a great growing season and it will be weaning time before we know it. These raining days have given me a lot of time to be at my looms and I've had a productive winter. I have a good supply of blankets to take to the Californio Event in Reno April 30, May 1 & 2. I had the dye pots simmering between rain storms and have some rich, fun colors in some of my blankets. I also have some beautiful natural colors from Cotswold sheep fleeces and these blankets are thick and soft. Hope to see all of you in Reno!

Here are a couple of pictures of the ranch. That's my pet longhorn steer, Joaquin!
