Wednesday was shearing day at the farm. Fifteen ladies, and one ram were not so happy about it, but they will be much cooler this summer without that 10 pounds of wool. I suppose they will thank me then. We finished the working pens about 2:00, Danny, the shearer, arrived about 3:00 and was gone by 4:30. For our first time it went well, but I did have to carry one 120 pound ewe to the chute. I know I was more tired than Danny, just because I did not know what I was doing. Next year it will go more smoothly. Now we have to think about weaning.
