IT'S SHEARING DAY!

A large group of folks is coming up today to help with a full-work day at the farm and end with a big ol' potluck! I'm looking forward to it. This is my first shearing I am hosting and doing by myself, a big step in the small holding shepherd's career. In a few hours there will be bags of wool and a fine group of friends laughing, eating, and working together. Days like today, Hoo!

With the fleece gone will you be better able to tell if you have more lambs on the way?

Jenna, you are an inspiration. Insightful, creative, BRAVE, tenacious, persistent, ingenious, musical...oh, I could go on and on. As a hobby farmer with a menagerie of my own, I understand and relate to some of the trials and successes you have. Hang in there...to thine own self be true! It is a delight to read your blog. Thank you for sharing :-)

Love the way sheep look after being shorn. You and everybody else are going to have a blast—great idea to make it a day!

I had so much fun- a lot of laughs! It wouldn't have been as much of a hoot if you had called in professionals!
Thanks for including all of us.
