New Sheep at the farm!

It's that time of year when we think about shearing the sheep. It is not warm enough yet but the time is coming for the job to be done. It is a chore to be sure but yields such wonderful results. The wool from the sheep is something to truly to appreciate. I love the lanolin on the wool. Good for the hands!!!!!!

This grouping of prim sheep was created when I thought of how they look just after being sheared. The shears get very close to the skin and they have little left, but it starts to back quickly. Though this is why the shearing needs to be scheduled when there is little cahnce for rain or cool weather and they must have access to shelter to protect them for a few days until all that luscious wool starts to grow back.

You can see these sheep at:

Have a wonderful Tuesday and hope the sun is shining where you are! It is here!!!!
