the shearing of the sheep

We didn't get around to shearing the sheep last fall so they were pretty woolly, to say the least. Up until now we've been using hand shears but Jen just invested in some electric shears and boy, did that go faster.

Our 3 sheep are for wool. After shearing, Jen cleans, combs and spins the wool into yarn. More to come on that . . .

Tiny, the goat, is not too sure about this.

All done!
