My First Shearing Day


The Day Before
 Kind Sweet Leo volunteered to go first.




Hassie was next.

"I am sorry Leo. It is what I brought you here for in the first place. Please don't look at me like that"..


 Ornery Mac was putty in our shearer's hands.




 And Big Guy Carnie, who has been a bit of a bully lately, finished it off.


Did you expect that brown sheep to have a silver fleece?

Everybody looks great! The brown to gray is always a shocker :-D.

Oh my . . . they are SHEARED!
(Now what . . . do you wash the wool?)

Lynn said...

I wonder if they like that feeling - with their wool off? Wonderful pics!

Love the look on Leo's face! Beautiful colored fleece. I'm not a spinner but I love how the fresh fleeces look.

They are SO CUTE!!!!
I would love to have a baby lamb. My mother had one when she was little and the photos of the two of them together are just THE sweetest thing.
Thanks for sharing --- love your comments!

I wonder if they feel as good after getting sheared as I do after getting my hair cut....I hope so.

Amazing before and afters, in the skilled hands of the shearer. Fiber heaven, indeed!
