Shearing day = tiny sheep

The shearers were hard at work today,

adding 13 bags of wool to sort and decide what how to handle.   I think three fleeces are only going to be good for felting as there is some breakage when the ewes gave birth.  I thought there was a photo of sheep without wool, but I must have been too tired to get that one….maybe tomorrow.   All adult sheep now have their annual inoculations and all babies are tagged.  There are two adults who lost their tags and we will retag them asap.  Right now, they are a bit jumpy.
