On the day the sheep shearer came over my rose bush was in full bloom!
I found him on Craig's list, he was charging $5 per sheep plus mileage.
I had 6 sheep that needed shearing, 3 Icelandic and 3 Cascade. The Cascade's normally shed their wool naturally and I just gently peal it off in a roo'ing process but I think this years crazy weather may have had a negative impact on their shedding.
Ava didn't look too happy but she was much cooler once her wool was removed.
Hoss was gentile as always, he is such a good boy. The shearer went to school for two years learning his craft so I'm sure he will charge more once he gets more experience. Now I need to figure out what to do with all the wool I have in bags.
Lara looks much smaller and is a beautiful grey!
Ava looks healthy.
Azalea looks shrunken, Berkley is almost her size.
Zoe looks sleek with a trimmed black look.
Azalea has a deer/Soay look to her.
Ironwood looks much less mean, he is happy to be out in the yard grazing on grass behind the electric fence.
Hoss' head is much larger than his body, he has a lot of growing to do!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
