Haircuts and Hoof Trims

I got lucky and caught everyone in the shed Saturday morning, so it seemed like a good time to get everyone tidied up.

Edgar, Felix, and Chone finally got their rear ends sheared- so they look a little more respectable now.

We tried to trim off part of Felix’s horn that is growing down right next to his eye, but it proved a challenge keeping his head still long enough to get it done, so we’ll have to revisit that at some point later.

The only one who didn’t need any fussing was little Dottie. She’s got a fresh haircut from the end of March, and her hooves looked great.

Got a little bit of wool-work done this weekend too-



I still only have one bobbin for Sigrid, my antique Norwegian (Swedish?) wheel, but I’ve come up with a pretty slick way to wind off singles for plying on my Lateral treadle wheel. More on that next week!
