Sheering 2018

Thank you to all of friends and family helping with sheering. Kolbet sheep sheering came out today to sheer our 24 Romney and Romeldale ewes two weeks prior to lambing.  Ideally we would have been three to four weeks out but the flu hit Mason our sheerer.

Overall our second year of sheering went better than last. I need to assemble a proper checklist of all the items and supplies needed for this day along with a comprehensive list of jobs. Perhaps a future posting.

This event requires lots of friends and family. Everyone has a job to make the day as efficient as possible.

 Passed out after hard days work.
