N-Ewes from Hopeful Shetlands

Monday, February 22, 2010


Well shearing went extremely well on the 20th and I got some spectacular wool from all the sheep, especially the BFL crosses. Thanks to the now well oiled shearing team of Karen Childs, her huband Brian and her parents John and Kathy all the critters received their haircuts. My hubby does a fantastic job catching and penning the sheep, and my friend Sherrie and I do the skirting and prepare and serve the lunch. There were more animals than I thought, and I think they were happy to lose their fleeces. The next day they were all out in the sunshine frolicing in the snow and having a great time. Today,of course, they are all happy to be in the barn as we are getting dumped on with snow. We also found out that we had missed a ram lamb, so I might have a few more babies than expected this spring as well. Oops! Enjoy the pics.
