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!
