It was hair cutting time in the barn this week! Well, not technically hair actually – wool.
Chipit and Maple had theirs cut a while back, but the three younger sheep still needed to be done. Yoghurt was by far the most agreeable. He loved the back rub! Strawberry and Raspberry were more ticklish and wiggly, but even so it was nice to work with sheep that aren’t afraid of us.
I forgot to photograph Strawberry before and after, but here are Yoghurt and Raspberry.
Quite the change! We measured Yoghurt’s fleece at 9 inches long. It is really beautiful wool. The ewe lambs have a lot of hair in their wool, so the quality is less good.
And of course while I was in the barn… How could I resist photographing those cute little lambs?
