Shear Anticipation

For the last three years, I have harvested fleeces from the boys using hand shears-
It’s a pretty casual affair, and we like it that way, but it does take me quite a while to get it done.

This year, we’re changing up the routine.

The new equipment just arrived the other day in it’s own special little suitcase:

Will probably still shear mostly with the boys standing haltered, but hopefully this will help us get through it a bit faster and make it a little easier to clean up their tummies when we do have them flipped.

Now we just need the weather to cooperate.
