Griff, who is normally very gentlemanly once you lay hands on him, was a total bugger. Really didn’t want to give up the winter coat.
But in the end we prevailed.

and Frank.
Sorry, didn’t get any pictures of Frank.
Frank and Felix were both pretty felted, but somehow on Frank’s back there was a lot of dirt and grit. Like someone had poured a bunch of builders sand on him. Trying hard to imagine how it got there.

We also did CDT vaccines, dewormer, and hoof trimming. So it was a pretty busy morning.

And when it was all over, we played ball-

Ah, the pups do love a little fetch.

Oh hey- and Friday I was over at Schoonover Farm for their spring shearing.
It was a great time, as usual, and I came away from it with a lovely fleece from Rueben, a 15 year old wether.
Check it out:

    Wow- Reuben never looked better!!! Sorry to hear Frank and Felix were felted. I am sure you noticed some of our sheep were felted this year too. Not sure why….

      Thanks Donna- I was able to get some nice wool off each of the white boys, mostly from around the neck and shoulders. I keep thinking that maybe I can do something with the big felted slabs, so I might wash them up anyway. Reuben’s fleece is really nice. It’s going to be a lot of fun to play with!
