Okay, here’s my visual postcard from the sheep shearing at our farm this weekend. Thanks to the White family teenagers who run the shearing operation: Noah, Abraham and Esther. They worked from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm, non-stop. Really no breaks. This is hard work. Kids these days…are terrific!
Before: still wearing the winter coats.
Noah, Abraham, and Emily at work.

Baa baa black sheep…
Outside! (Sheep always look like goats to me after they’re sheared.) Now, it’s time to start growing those new coats for next winter.
