My brother and I sheared 6 sheep yesterday and as you can see two of the sheep where very big. One was probably over two hundred and fifty pound.

As some of you may know, I shear sheep kind of as a side job my dad has been shearing sheep since I have three. I had gone with him since than. Starting by trimming hooves when I was about 11 and shearing my first sheep when I was 14. The one time I got a chance to shear as many as I could in a day I did 32 which is far from what the real pros do. I can usually shear a sheep in about seven minutes. I did my first job of the year last as usual I was sore the day after even though it was just two sheep. .I hopefully will be shearing twice this coming week
It was a very busy week here at the farm. We have a new Lamancha buckling from great lines. We drove 4 hours today round trip to pick up three female heritage breed turkeys pictures to come as I get them.

|Sumatra chick foraging|

We also sold our two mixed kids that were born this year, one of my Lionhead rabbits and a Light Brahma rooster. I picked up eight Sumatra and Sumatra cross chicks. I also got a Dominque cross rooster.
Yesterday after a few months of searching I found a male Lionhead rabbit. So hopefully will have baby rabbits in a month or so.
My Americana hen is also sitting on about 15 eggs that should hatch this weekend.
