I have had this note forwarded to me by several folks who are interested in the
fleeces -- While I have a huge 5+ acre field that intend to put sheep in next
door to my home in McDade, TX, it needs fence repairs (mostly clearing growth
out of the fence line and straightening up and replacing a few posts) followed
by adding goat fence all around (4 strand barbed-wire right now).  

I would be willing to go get the animals in question and keep them fed, vetted
and happy -- *IF* I can find volunteers who want to help fix fence, pitch in
towards purchasing goat fencing and will help install it -- and of course who
will come out and help at lambing and shearing time. Then these self-same volunteers
would get the fleeces.

(Here's the whitewash, there's the fence....)

If any of you spinning folks (or those with an interest in medieval animal husbandry)
are interested, contact me offlist at <gunnora at>
