The indignitation of it all!! (o; Victoria is very pregnant. Our first possible due date is tomorrow, the 7th of January......
Nice crimp!! As you can see on this fleece, there is some dirt on the tips. Even with the coats it can not be helped as the sheep live outside... There is a little 'felting', but when the fleece is washed this disappears.
'Queen' Victoria gets sheared.

While Jerry shears, I sit on a bale of hay and knit. This is one of the sheep's grain pails that is housing my yarn, and then the hat when he needs me. This is some of our homegrown mill spun yarn that was left over.
Hay feeders on either side of the aisle way.
Unless we decided to bring out the shop vac and suck up every little piece of hay and dirt, there might end up being some 'stuff' that will get picked up by a fleece.
