All in a days work :)Do you spin any wool yourself Karen? It's something I have always wanted to try but yet to attempt.x
Tammi I would love to spin the wool...it fascinates me... One day I will, probably not for a very long time though, Maybe when the kidlets all leave home... :)
Ooh, lovely, Karen!! Such beaauuutiful pics. What breed are they?
Thanks Christine, It was such a lovely afternoon, I got so many great photos.I think the ram is a Dorset cross and the ewes are first cross, What ever that means!!
Love the way the kids set the chairs up. Good entertainment for an afternoon. Very portable shearing set up for the shears, that must make it very handy for small lots.
It's always entertaining watching someone else do all the hard work!! :) The shears weren't fantastic, hubby found it a bit tough, but they did the job for our small mob and the open space was probably a little more breezy then a shearing shed!
I love how nice and clean they look afterwards.
Yes they are clean but I think they look funny, like little rats! I much prefer the big woolly look! :)
Don't you love how kids make family events like this become like a theatrical viewing- chairs, ice blocks, intense concentration! I love the wooly love heart. Please tell us you sat it out with your biggish bump and just made tea and watched!
Well there you go, that would be the artist in you Annie, It never occurred to me that she was holding a fleecy love heart! Great eye!
What great family entertainment!! I bet those sheep are a lot happier now!
Yeh, poor sheep, they always looked so hot in their woolly coats, we couldn't shear them any earlier though as it kept raining every weekend and they were always wet. Apparently you cant shear a wet sheep!
your husband wouldn't need to go to the gym :)..your children look so happy watching their dad..what a lovely way for them to grow up..
I love the 'audience' all lined up on their chairs :D
Love this! :) Awesome how your little ones are all so into watching the process ;) I used to love shearing time as a kid ;)
