Limerick Link For April:
CanCam Co-op's just the spot,
To send llama fibre you've got,
And alpaca too.
Whatever you do,
Make sure your membership's bought.
Camelid Fibre Co-op
Dee's dogs win glory and fame
Giving Willowrose a terrific name
And Lab or a Bu
Or something else new
Dee helps us all just the same.
Welcome with special good cheer
The first Shetland lamb of the year.
He's a British AI,
A cute little guy.
From the fine flock at Desert Weyr.
We grow fibre that's soft and fine
Which we sort and grade and combine.
Laurie's mill is first rate,
And the yarns we create
Are really the top of the line.
Wheel Fibre Works
Belle Haven is new on the block,
Hopes to breed from great Buhund stock.
While beyond compare,
Our Buhunds are rare.
We all need more puppies to walk.
Belle Haven Buhunds
Fine fibre so soft there's no itch,
To weave, to knit and to stitch.
When all's said and done,
Alpaca's the one
That delivers this high fashion pitch.
NASSA will keep us all straight
On parents, sex*, and birth date.
With info galore
Newsletters and more,
Shetland flocks can all be first rate!

Buhund dogs are smart as a whip,
Can be trained to jump and to skip.
Always eager to herd
Sheep, cattle or bird,
Hard workers with joy, zest and zip.
Dee Parsons, Member of the Obedience Partners Training Team
Our Buhunds are special and rare,
Canine buddies beyond compare.
At shows or the park,
They're always a lark,
With their smarts, their looks and their flare.
Montana is home to a flock
That seems fertile right round the clock.
In spring Judy is busy
And sometimes quite dizzy
With not enough jugs for the stock!

Shannon's a whiz on the Net
Building Web Sites you never forget.
Her Griffons don't complain,
They know their domain
Stays top of the list, you can bet.

Lanette's flock has spots that are cool,
Pulled from her hidden gene pool.
Winchester's the ram
Who unlocked the dam
Lanette knows the genes always rule!
Lanette Scapillato (Shetland and Clun Forest Sheep)
Computers she used to debug,
But she gave it up with a shrug.
Now sheep are Kim's game
Wild, friendly or tame
And the fibre ends up as a rug
