Shearing the Rams


A gorgeous morning…time to shear! I started with Tuff and was rewarded with a beautiful variegated grey fleece.. he is also really thin and now going on a new feeding routine… We have moved Fiona back over to the pastures in case her diet routine is causing too much competition for the rams- they all had their feet done, vaccinations updated and worming right on schedule.

Darrell, my gotland ram gave me a nice fleece…he had to talk about his shearing predicament the whole time

O.B. (you know it is darrell and his other brother darrell) my Gotland wether was an angel this year!!!!

Our guardian dog was not impressed by the whole scene….

Create a great day!
