Spring Shearing 2013
The sheep finally got haircuts today! Way overdue, but thankfully the spring has been kind to them by staying cool.
Normally our shearers come as a team but today Jessica sheared alone. We had the sheep corralled in the barn and one by one brought them to her. 2 1/2 hours later, 15 ewes and 1 ram she was done. Good job, Jess!
I trimmed feet as she finished each one and checked eyes for signs of parasites. I only had to worm 4 that were just border line. A huge chore scratched off the list today!
