IT'S SHEARING DAY!

Brigit's FIRE! It is shearing day 2014! In a few hours this farm will have about a dozen people (friends and Common Sense Farm interns) here trapping, catching, wranglin and helping master shearing Jim McRae with the flock. I am always excited about Shearing Day, one of my new holidays of Cold Antler Farm. And all the wool will be shipped off to the mill by the end of May so folks waiting on their knitting can get started with those purls. Well, wherever you are, enjoy the sun! 80 degrees here after a long winter is nothing short of a blessing. Brigit's Fire, indeed!
