Shearing Today

We’re heading to the barn to finish shearing preparations… always a very exciting day!  It’s a good thing we got everyone into the barn early yesterday because we were hit with several severe thunderstorms and heavy rain late afternoon and through the night.  You just can’t shear wet sheep so we were lucky.  Family and friends are coming to help and Rebecca is coming to look at some yearlings.  Our shearers, Joe and Melvin, will be here at 9:00, so off to eat some breakfast and then to the barn!

  1. Nice! Happy shearing:) And if ever you feel experimental, mom told us the first soccer ball was made of sheep wool wrapped around a cloth….

  2. We had a wonderful time. Everyone was so kind to us "newbies" in the sheep world. The girls (Esther, Ruth and Naomi) made the trip home fine and they are settled in to their pens and munching on hay. They are doing lots of foot stomping at the Pyrenees. Aurora is the most beautiful place I have ever been. I didn't want to leave and I will be back soon. I am ready to sell the farm here and relocate. Thanks again girls, it was a day to remember.
