Sheep shearing

Well yesterday I sheared my big lamb, because he had a weigh-in today. Well he's one pretty boy! I'll take some pictures and put them on some time. Well I was hoping that he would be under 100lbs. ,and he's 96lbs. That's not ideal but it's manageable. What you really want is 70lbs. but I know someone who weigh-in a 104lb. lamb and made it to the fair. So I can do it if I try hard, and I will. I would have sheared my other sheep, but we were having a cold spell and the sheep are outside. The one I did shear is wearing a slinky. That's like a tight fitting shirt. He'll wear that until tomorrow or at least when it get's warmer. Well that's all I have for now, I'll keep you posted.


  1. Wishing you a good day for shearing; the sheep enjoy warmer weather more when they are nekkid -smile-.

  2. Just wanted to say Hello. I too at one time had sheep. I will have to send you a picture of them. They are on my blog archives. Still wishing I too were having fun with my little lambs. Have fun with them.
