The sheep often find themselves in strange positions when getting shorn. Sometimes they just look like a lump of wool.
When sheep are sat up or laid on their backs, they go limp. Most of ours stay that way till the shear is done and lets them up. Rosemary, Izzy, Pumpkin or Liam will sometimes give the shearer trouble, trying to get back on their feet again. But Biddy and Sock didn’t give Liz and Ian any trouble.
