When the sun shines or it rains - the exciting and the boring of my life.

Shearing and Hoof Trimming

Photobucket
Before
As some of you may know I do some Sheep shearing for fun. It gives me a chance to see other peoples farms and be with animals which I love as well as some pretty interesting stories. Such as getting dragged across the rough rocky ground and where there are not rocks there is mud I prefer to call it mud and not manure and who knows when the sheep where last sheared when you have to use the hoof trimmers to cut the wool and  needless to say you end up looking and smelling like  sweaty sheep. Than  this year I sheared my first angora goats so thought I would show you all some pics.
