Thank you, Mike!

Got a bit of better light in between the rain, tested stacking teleconverters again.

Shalu; I think that your testing conclusively shows that the stacking you are doing produces photos with very nice IQ. These two kites look great.

Even with frozen painful hands, you still got a great close-up, Jeff. If it were me, I'd be inside sitting in front of the fire.:-)

Haha. LOL. :lol:
Haven't seen the outcome (fleeces), but it'd be mottly wool.
Better than nothing.
Weather like that and they'd have kept their fleece.

Looks like that fella is coping well.  :p

Richard, I can believe "mottly." The sheeps' coats in your photos vary a great deal in tone. The wool would make interesting yarn if blended together and used without dyeing. Does it get dyed?

There's no commercial market for it. The whites okay, not the coloured.

Wife has spun the coloured and there's a small number of people who use it, but it's not really fashionable.
There was a time when it was and spinners and weavers prevailed.

Some dye the whites using natural ingredients and they get beautiful results. I've not seen coloured fleece dyed.

But these days I think there's more call for refined, finer wools, fibres.
Cashmere, merino (superfine) and that is so beautifully soft.
The wool on my sheep is coarse and not for delicate skins.

We've felted it, but nothing serious.

These dark sheep are excellent mothers, tough as one thing and well behaved.

Thanks Phil… He's a cool little dude. Comes around once in a while. He's a little buck born last spring. Trying to talk him into coming back when he's got a big rack on his head.

Richard, it's been years since I've raised sheep but I remember the wool market fluctuated so much it sure made it difficult to be profitable some years. The last year we had sheep, the wool paid the labor bill to shear them, nothing more. I've attempted to shear a few before, they looked terrible, had a few nicks and wore me out, my back could never do that job for long.
I have hand knit 100% wool socks that I wear when the winter temps become extreme here and I need to work outside all day. I wear them over a thin pair of socks in a boot one size larger than I normally wear. My 88 year old Mother has knit them for 60 years and I've been able to stash 6 new pair this year knowing there is no one to take her place. They are priceless to me.
