You shear them yourself? Kudos! And that pollie boy looks stunning; what a fleece!!!
Are you actually shearing all of those sheep ALL. By. Yourself??? There should be a law against anyone having to do that! SOMEBODY should be helping you!(as long as it's not me) I HATE shearing. And lambing. And ram reunion day. And ear tagging. And giving shots. Thank God Shetlands are born with short tails!!!;-)
Yup, I'm going it alone this year. Various friends come along and WATCH for a while, but I don't think that counts as help!! Actually I did them myself last year too. I may not make the neatest (nor quickest) job but I do get a sense of satisfaction out of it, sometimes I even enjoy it!Glad you like the lambs. I really do want to put up individual photos of them and get my for sale list sorted.
Scrumptious fleeces on your sheep Jenny! Tolly is turning into a really nice tup as well! Your whole flock is wonderful.
