Shearing day was yesterday and the weather could not have been better. Great company and potluck. Everyone pitched in and the day went really well. Fifty head of sheep were shorn by 2PM. Hauled my sheep and a friend's in the trailer that B. had fixed up just for this. It was his dad's car trailer and he had a wire cage attached with a gate in the middle and double gates in the back. Here are the sheep loaded up after shearing. And I must say that mine walked into the trailer like obedient children. They are so good. Made this shepherdess proud.
