Shearing Day here was way back in early February. I wrote a post about shearing the rams, but never got to the rest of it.
As I went through my photos I realized that a lot of them are of people, not sheep. But that is what makes Shearing Day here so fun–my fabulous Farm Club. The Fiber members chose their fleeces this day, but other members were here too. Everyone has a job and it makes the day go so smoothly.
The star of the show is our shearer, John.
John’s shearing shoes.
Stephany and Gynna…
…and Brenda were sheep wranglers, never letting John run out of sheep.
Deborah and Lorrian pushed sheep to the shearing pen.
Kathleen weighed fleeces.
Amy worked the gate in where the sheep left after being shorn.
With all these other people working…
…I could just lounge.
Here is Hallie after shearing…
…and this is the beautiful result.
Trista: “Does this shearing job make my head look big?”
Speaking of heads several of us wore our Baa-ble hats.
Some people left before we took these last photos, but there was still quite a crew for this photo.
