And all's well!

The ewes will be glad it's done as it's warm here today. As ususal, they look a bit odd but we kept the lambs around during shearing, so there wasn't the usual confusion when they were reunited.

Garry's done a good job - just a few wee nicks that have been sprayed with iodine and are dried up this morning. They all look nice and tidy.

The gimmers have the biggest change - having lost their lamb fleece, they all of a sudden look just like the older ewes.
