Clipping 2018

Back at the end of May we got our sheep clipped. The very hot weather had left them hot and irritable. The clipping trailer was installed in the lambing shed, and over the course of two very hot days, all the sheep were clipped.

The usual suspects were on hand to help. Teddy...

...and Jess.

Thanks to adding a gate at one end of the trailer, a third man could clip too. This got the job done just that little bit quicker.

In quieter moments, Jess played ball.

My pets were saved for last - which is just as well, because I had a challenge getting them gathered. Clearly I have too many. Rosie was up first.

There they are, standing with Millie's girls. From left to right is Angus, Andy, Abby and Annie. My beautiful A-lambs!

Bob's turn.

Maggie's too.

Bob's almost done.

Margo is hiding.

For Penny, Maggie and Morag this was their first time being clipped. I was thrilled to see that Morag has a spotty tummy. It's very cute.

And that was clipping for another year!
