Shearing day has finally arrived!
Getting ready for the shearer...I'm sporting my new Australian cowboy hat (early Christmas gift from Jessica). I get water for some very thirsty sheep (for after),
while Greg secures the door between the stalls
The girls are ready..."What's up, Mom?"
Zinnia: before, during, and after
Cocoa: before, during, and after
Zuma: before, during, and after
Daisy: before, during, and after
And, last but not least...Solomon: before, during, and after. The big guy had a lot of burrs in his woool, and he put up the biggest fight of anybody.
Here I am, putting the fresh fleeces into pillow cases.
Is Miss Daisy thinking about coming back in for more? Maybe she's looking for her wool coat! Skipper and Gabby want to know what's going on. There they are...the whole gang.
I must say, the whole experience was everything I'd hoped it would be.
