Shearing day is here!
My favorite - and most hated - day of the sheep year is shearing. Yes it’s fun to see the sheep come out all clean and shiny but getting there is usually a painful experience. A big THANK YOU to our shearer Michael Estes who sheared a record 150 sheep in one day - and left before it was dark!! The day went smooth and was actually fun thanks also to the help of our daughter Sarah Hughes who caught most of the sheep leaving Dan and I to handle the wool and keep track of everything. We still have our rams to do tomorrow morning but after today 25 animals will be easy!!
