Sheep Shearing Day

Today was shearing day.
It ranks as one of the most stressful days of the year for me.

Today was the only day of the week that had zero chance of rain.
I prayed really hard that it stayed that way.

Corraling the sheep is always a treat. That little grey ewe pictured above is my menace and one of the squirumest sheep to shear.

I used grain to sucker  gather all the sheep into 2 main stalls.

33 suckers sheep were all set for Trevor to shear. Trevor is an awesome shearer! More to come on him in the post on the alpaca shearing.

When all was done it was pretty impressive.

I piled all the wool on the screened-n-porched......so many bags of wool....so many ideas......
