I was thinking maybe you would like a blog post today that didn’t involve any afterbirth! 🙂
We sheared on Friday (Mar 16) so I’ll share some snippets from that instead.
My woolies are at their wooliest and it is time to de-wooly them.
Before shearing we try to get a quick measurement and photo of each fleece while it is still on the sheep. This is Colin's who looks to be measuring in at 5.25 with a pretty crimp and luster.
This is Colin being sheared by Emily Chamelin. She is an amazing young woman ho has no problem maneuvering around 200-300 lb animals.
The booty. Each bag represents the fleece from one sheep. Next we (mom and I) will skirt the fleeces and prepare them for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Fleece Show and Sale.
