Sheep Shearing Sisters!
Our family was BLESSED to be invited to help shear some SERIOUSLY IN NEED sheep at our friend Margo's house. This was SO MUCH FUN yet so stinky and challenging!
First, a quick cute picture of my sweetie pie!! He had fun!
These are there two sheep. Lizzy and Wooly I think??? The bigger one is actually the female. They didn't know it, but they were fixen to feel ALOT better in all this Kansas heat!
A few quick pics of some cute kids with kitties and Goaties!
This is the first sheap. He is just about finished here. We sure did a chop job on them, but atleast they have some relief from all that wool!! Sheep produce Lanolin out of there skin. This is the stuff used for breast feeding mothers sore....well , ya know!! SO, they were very oily, and Wynter thought she might have alittle spa treatment on her footsies....
So Kate thought this was a GREAT idea and went for it too!!!
Time for some more shearing.... We were using every sharp thing we could find! These are a pair of sharp teeth scissors, we also had a pair of Goat shearer's, Poultry scissors, regular scissors and even a tiny pocket knife!
Time for the under belly. Kim GRACIOUSLY volunteered to hold the sheep!! Let's just say, Kim was WARM!!! LOL
Possibly my favorite picture from the day!! AWWWWWWWW!!!
Sheep Shearing Sisters!!!! Who knows what we'll do next!!! LOL
