She is an older Leclerc, I can't seem to find her on their website so it will take a little research to find that out. She is solid, and only missing one of the beams, an apron rod, and a few screws. She is cleaned up and already in the studio. She only has a 27 inch weaving width, so she will be set up for the little stuff: mug rugs, towels, scarves, placemats, shawls and fleecey bench pads. I think it is the bench pads that will be put on first. I am itching to get that figured out and my benches covered!
On day 2, I was a little concerned about the little doeling, she wasn't as perky as the buckling. I milked out a couple of tablespoons of milk from Snickers, and I took a new 3ml syringe and syringe fed her two of those. Later on that evening, I put her up to nurse and made sure that Snickers was letting her have her share. She nursed really well, but I will continue to keep an eye on her.
I am still waiting for Mopsie to have hers, I think she may have 2 as well, I sure hope so.
I will be selling the buckling for sure, but that won't be until September. I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
