  1. Lucas says – I loved learning about giving the sheep a hair cut (sorry – I’m only 6 and this is what it sounded like!) It sounds great fun but very hard work 😉 #animaltales

  2. We got our sheep sheared this week – all TWO of them but with a heatwave forecast for the next few days it was not a minute too soon – I *think* they said thank you as they shot off across the field afterwards feeling several pounds lighter!

    Many thanks for adding this wool reducing tale to #AnimalTales and apologies for commenting so late – life (and sheep shearing) rather got in the way of blogging this week!

  3. did you get the kids to line up for their annual haircut also, love the dog getting sheared. Why was is less work having the sheep sheared in the field rather than the yard?

      Ha ha that’s a good idea for next year 😉
      We would have had to load them all into the trailer and bring them over and that would then cause stress for the lambs as they would have been in the field apart from their mothers. Plus it’s hard work actually getting them to go into the trailer
