Really bad hair day
Yesterday we tried shearing one of our sheep, a first for both Chris and me. He held her while I did the cutting. We were supposed to have someone show us how but he hasn't been in touch so we gave it a try on our own. I was feeling very tentative with the hand shears I was using because I didn't want to cut her so I left a lot of wool on her. Not only that but the cut is very irregular so she's really got a bad do (Crystal would not approve--ha ha). But towards the end I started to get the hang of it so her right flank looks much better than her left. The next one should be better, let's hope. Feel free to laugh out loud at the shoddy job--I sure did!
