Our First Shearing!

Today we had the luck to see both our friend Lisa and our friend Emily, Shearer Extraordinaire!

I was excited to see what kind of condition our sheep are in underneath all that wool, and to see if Alabama still looked like a planetarium once he was shorn.

He does.

Emily sheared everyone in no time flat.  She always has good advice and pointers and I got to see how my sheep are looking through the eyes of an expert.

Lisa’s littlest one came along, as did her older brother Alston to play with Oona.

Mountains of luscious wool sit in bags now, waiting to join with Susan’s and be turned into yarn and blankets.  Lisa and I got to spend a lovely day together while the kids played,  and Emily is on to her next shearing gig.

Cheers!
