Today was the day, the sheep finally had their coats taken off and should feel much better in this hot week to come. It is not easy to find someone to shear sheep in this area. For this young man, it is his first year shearing for the public and the first year using electric shears. Since these sheep have loose skin which creates a lot of folds as well as heavy fleeces, it was a challenge for him. The sheep did get a few nicks, but I’m trusting that next year will go much better for both the sheep and the shearer.
