Shearing Day

Unbelievably, the weather turned warm yesterday. My shearer came at 9 and by 11, we had shorn, vaccinated and trimmed the hooves of twelve of my flock. It sure is funny to see how small they actually are when they are "naked"!

My fleeces were still damp, so all twelve are spread out on my basement floor to finish drying before they are weighed and skirted, then packed into boxes to be delivered to Green Mountain Spinnery. Next week we will finish shearing the rest of the flock, then before I know it babies will start arriving! I am so excited!
