Sheared for shape
The shearer gives little notice. He brings all his supplies and we provide meals and a place to stay if it ends up being an over nighter. He has been shearing our sheep for 20 some years and we have a lot to catch up on over lunch. 8^) Our flock has decreased so we now only require half a day. The light coloured sheep are the ewes (females) which have just been sheared. The smaller greyer sheep are this spring's lambs. They have actually done very well this year and the whole flock is in good shape.
What if... I've kinda taken the sheep for granted. What kind of creativity would they inspire?
