Shearing day!

Yesterday I went with my Dad to help shear some sheep! Isn
't he a wonderful guy? There were 8 sheep sheared in all - and some sure gave us a run for our money. The fleece looks to be a sulfolk cross- great for socks!!

It was a bit warm yesterday- so we sheared in the old milking area, with a fan running in background for us!

There is a great picture of Daddy as he helps to keep the fresh shorn fleece away from the shearers way. Jim, the Shearer did a wonderful job!!

I really enjoyed this - wish we had room for sheep too! But well- I have 1 of the fleeces washed up already- and have been working on getting yarns done - so I guess I am busy enough!
