Shearing Day

A couple of weeks ago we had shearing day here at our farm. I have a new shearer. My other shearer after 10 or so years , maybe longer , retired. She was lots of fun and when she finished I always had a big pot of soup on and we would eat lunch together and then she would go on her merry way.
My new shearer is a man and comes after his work in the afternoon so he doesn't get lunch. I was very happy with him and he will be back next year.
Most people shear in the spring but I prefer to shear my sheep in the fall. We have such rainy and muddy weather the fleece stays cleaner during the winter. Here are some pictures to share with you.

Before and after
