After their first shearing! (Since I became a, well, a shepherd!)

Now we have a bunch of naked Shetlands!

Neat job  :thumbsup:  I always laugh at my sheep when their fleeces come off. :sheep: :sheep: :sheep:

They look a bit tidier than my first shearing!  This year I'm calling it success as long as the fleece is (mostly) off and no-one is bleeding  :tired:
Shetland sheep, Copper Marans chickens, Miniature Silver Appleyard ducks, and ginger cats.

Just re read that and believe I am misleading people!  :thinking: Have changed wording, which was surprisingly tricky, still not sure if gets it across!  ;D

It was my first shearing as a sheep owner, it was done by a friend of ours who's a professional shearer! I have tried shearing our goat myself - she's never spoken to me since  :-\

Although perhaps I should have kept quiet and have you all believe I'm a pro!!  :innocent:

Nice sheep  :)  :love: :sheep:

The one looking at my daughter is pretty tiny anyway.  She's a lovely little sheep, an adorable cross between dead nosey and dead nervous!
