Helen of Dover

Dor Galen ewe #14 has a new name. She was sheared yesterday after hubby got home from work.
 I thought such a noble sheep with  a beautiful face deserved a fair appellation, therefore, Helen of Dover is now her name. She gave us a worthy fleece.......... soft, with alot of crimp, Dorset-like in appearance. There is decidedly more vegetable matter in the Dor Galen fleeces this year which does not make me happy, but we determined that the hay rack from which we have been feeding them needs modification.
I'm hoping to get a photo of her and shall post it later.
