Sheep shearing


It's that time of year - time to shear the sheep. We've made a start. We've managed to do 4 already! While that is a number a professional sheep shearer can do in a few minutes on their own, 3 of us - all amateurs! - are building up our skills and experience rather slowly. 

We still have 4 texels to do and then 9 Hebrideans. Then we need to sort what we are going to do with the wool.
