Spring Shearing

The end of April was so beautiful. The weather was down right hot but welcomed. We were able to get all the ewes sheared in a shorter period of time than we normally do – a wet sheep cannot be sheared; not easily. Some of our wool is sold to End of the World Farm and they add it to the other wool they purchase and make rugs from the fiber. Additionally last year a guy purchased some wool for “all natural” dog beds he was creating. He called last week interested in more! And some of the real nice Romney fleeces are sold the Common Ground Country Fair held at MOFGA each September. Here are some pictures of Pete shearing our rams; Spike and Onslo. Also the bags of wool in the barn loft.

The before and after!
