Sheep shearing

May 23, 2012 § Leave a comment

The sheep got sheared on Monday. Cella and Emmet recently acquired five wooly Dorset ewes, in addition to the two Icelandic ewes and their offspring, for us to have over at La Finca. The thick wool coats of the Dorsets are not helpful for enforcing electric fencing, and besides, it’s getting hot around here. So they called the shearer for a visit.

He clipped the ewes’ hooves as well.

Hm. Not comfortable looking. Hang in there, little lady. You’re almost done.

There! That must feel better.
