Shearing the Sheep.It all ended up as a bit of a rush job. The shearer rang to bring forward the shearing date and suddenly it was all on. We had to draft off the lambs and get the ewe's inside before it rained - which it did while we were still getting them in.
I had plans to take photos along the way but that ended when the weather arrived faster than we were working. So here we have them next day, reunited with their lambs.
As you can see the lambs are nearly as big as their mothers, who are looking super white now.
The lambs will be shorn mid January so fingers crossed for some more action photos then.
There was more wool on them this year - we've had a few good growing seasons here. They were feeling very energetic with the weight off and keen to get up on the hills to eat, eat, eat.
