It’s Egger (Edgar) 🙂
It all started because I was trimming some wool around his neck that was really matted.
Then I started looking at the rest of his fleece, and it occurred to me that it was already almost as long as it was back in March. And I figured, if I sheared him now, he’ll certainly have regrown enough by late Fall to be comfortable when the weather turns cold.
So I went for it.
I don’t know if he was looking for some quality time with his maaaaa, or if he just likes bein’ nekkid, but the boy was really relaxed and cooperative.
It happened kind of spur-of-the-moment, and I didn’t have anything handy to put the fleece in, so I piled it up on top of a wheelbarrow on the other side of the shed as I went along. Think I managed to keep most of the straw bedding out of it.
The other guys were a little surprised to see the shears out again so soon, and are wondering if they’ll be next-
I’m not sure if I’ll do anyone else. Maybe Egger will be my one experimental Fall guy.
We’ll just see how it goes.
In other news, I’ve recently gotten inspired to weave.
This hasn’t happened since back in 2008 (man, how time flies!)
I think it was the rug/import shop in Langley that did it.
I just love kilims.
So I think I’m going to try and learn how to do tapestry weaving.
I’ve gotten my frame loom back out
And I’m going to start playing around.
Maybe I’ll have something to share by next week.
Wish me luck!
