The bright blue tarp is our shearing platform. Professional.
And a close-up of the wool:
That bright white patch there is the bald spot that's been sheared so far.
Coco had a lot of good, clean wool on her. We ended up with a kitchen garbage bag stuffed full, which will be washed and eventually brought to the woolen mill to be carded and then spun into yarn for knitting.
We only did the one sheep yesterday, because there was another chore waiting. And that brings me to the teaser for tomorrow's post . . .
Tomorrow on Going Country: A roll in the hay with Kristin. Stay tuned!
