Shearing Done...

Oh My God...Wait till you see the girls...they were shorn yesterday. As soon as one of my girls comes home, I will snap a few pics and post them...What a hoot...Harriet is so tiny...she looks like a little Lamb! Nothing like the pic above!
As the time approached, Josie, the horned and fresh one, was such a lady!! Took me totally by surprise. Just stayed put and let James shear her completely. And I think enjoyed every minute!
Now, Harriet on the other hand, who is such a LADY, calm, friendly, never jumpy...Would not stay still, tried to jump up and thrash around. I ended up on the ground with her to hold her head and whisper sweet nothings in her ear! She still wouldn't stay still, jumped and got a nasty nick! That's why I pay someone to shear them for me...I have no strength or stamina to stay crouched down on the ground for more than say...10 to 15 minutes...Poor James was in that position for -2 hours! Youth!!
Well I have some beautiful fleece...I am trying to decide whether to make a trip to Friend's Folly again or bring fleece to a mill here in NH...I'd like to keep the business here...we'll see. Bye for now until pics are ready...
