so one of the reasons that we acquired bfl is because you can shear them yourself.
well....I have never done that. So last night was a milestone. Beth's breeder said that her fleece needed to come off now. So I applied myself to the task. I did it but trust me it was not a perfect job. I was scared to death of nicking her....seriously I had a professional shearer injure a lamb so badly that we had to euthanize her-and now I was going to attempt it???
We succeeded and it was actually not so hard. I am sure I will learn with each shearing
Kerry is so curious, she wanted to know what we were doing to her big girl friend
Ta-dah!!!!! however Beth said what???? you are taking my picture???
And the result...a Beautiful bag of Fleece...I went right in and washed a bit...I am IN LOVE.....
