Really Ramming with Fall Shearing…

We held our annual fall shearing yesterday. The weather cooperated and it was beautiful ~a great day to get it done.

Here is a slideshow showing Jason shearing a ewe lamb…

Mark even tried has hand at shearing…

One of the dangers of shearing is that after a sheep or in this case, a ram has been shorn, the other rams do not recognize him and they will fight for dominance.

The two head smashers had to be separated as Sullivan took a pretty good cut to the head and Icelandic rams have been known to fight till the death.

When it was all said and done we ended up having quite a few laughs throughout the day, Mark tried his hand at shearing and we ended up with some beautiful fleeces!

Thanks again Jason!

Family Camp…

After such a long, long, long, week at the fair we were so incredibly glad to make it to Family Camp on Saturday after the sale at the fairgrounds.  It was so very needed and came at a  wonderful time for us.  We were incredibly blessed with beautiful weather and location, wonderful fellowship, and we were able to get to know some of the families a bit better.

We enjoyed a great and refreshing weekend and felt so blessed to have taken part of it.  Thanks so much Grace Church!

 

This is what we returned home to…
