After Shearing

When all the sheep were shorn and their hooves trimmed I opened the gate and out of the corner of my eye saw two black sheep fly past my head.  It was Constance and Robin, they were in such a hurry to get out they jumped four feet in the air right over Fate.

Once they went out to graze everything went back to normal.

  1. Thanks for documenting shearing day for us, they always look so petite without their fleeces.

    Love the cycle of you picking up the products made from the wool from the spring shearing, within days of some of the flock having a fall shearing.

    Congratulations on all the yarn sales, and swift work on all the dryer balls, now you’ll have to be patient to find a time to get the next batch to the mill, and see how the products turn out that you decide to have made from the fleeces of the newer sheep, shorn for the first time since moving to / being born at Bedlam Farm.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed it Hannah. I know you get to see a lot of sheep and videos of them. This time the wool is very different and I’m going to keep much of it natural. It’s always an exciting process.
