Shearing 2013

The ice just left Boston Lake last evening.
It was freezing cold. 
New snow on the ground this morning.
But shearing is Finished. 
And I am so grateful!
All the ewes looked good...even the timid young girls and my 'narrow Nhu.'
The girls have had their CD & T shots, their hooves trimmed, and been sheared now.
Here are a few 'after' photos...

Late Spring Pasture

There is not much green about yet...
but the ewes love nothing better than roaming far and wide in search of nibbles.
Finally got the girls out on pasture Monday (5/6/13).  That is really LATE!  But we had snow covering everything right up till then.  We still have ice on the lake and Opener is tomorrow.  Good luck to the fisherman trying to find open water.
Here are a couple of pictures of the sheep enjoying their freedom...
