Sheep Shearing

Ah....summer's near, the grass is green and it's that time of year to shed our winter coats.

Last fall, we sold down our flock, keeping 3 ewes.  Thus shearing was a bit less this spring.  We borrowed the clippers from in-laws.  One early May Saturday morning, Jen and Angel set to work.  

Unfortunately, as they were shearing, they made a discovery.  We actually have 2 ewes and 1 wither.  Apparently, upon loading lambs last fall, a ewe was accidentally loaded and a wither was left.  We chalked it up as anatomy lesson.  

"Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes."  Proverbs 19:2
