Shearing time!

It's shearing time! We started shearing last week in anticipation of lambing. Our first lambs showed up this year on Tuesday, March 18th, 2008 - twin ewe lambs! How lucky we were too! A beautiful black ewe lamb with a huge Krunet that 'drips' down her forehead, and a dark Moorit ewe lamb with a white dot on the top of her head. Mom and babies are doing wonderful.

A friend took a photo of the girls, some just sheared. Most of the flock is full or 7/8ths Shetland, a few are 3/4 at best. Bet you can tell who's who in the photo!

Here's a photo of a sample of fleece one gal took for me too. It's 5 inches long.

And a photo of a few of the fleeces too.
