Actually, it's only one bag of wool.
But its 4.4 lbs of lovely Corriedale wool to be exact.
Doesn't he look like he's smiling at us? And saying hi?
This little guy was shaking off, kind of like a dog does. It was so cute!
I had to stick to a budget...dang it.
Since Car Guy is going to be gone for two weeks straight in March, guess what I'll be doing?
We actually missed seeing the most of the shearing. We woke up to...snow!!! Yea! So we decided to go grab some breakfast, see how the roads were and go from there. The roads were fine and everything was very picturesque. When we got to the farm, they were shearing the last two sheep. The others were waiting patiently in the pins, bleating every so often and coming close to the side to get the occasional ear scratch. We were happy to oblige. Once they were release from the pin, they ran around the pasture, shaking off and frolicking about for their audience.
Even though we weren't there for very long, it was a wonderful experience and reminded me of how much I want to find my own little farm somewhere. I am waiting for my boys to finish school and then "maybe" might become "someday."
Here's a link to the farm we went to - Rising Meadow Farm
