What I Will Be Doing on May Day

After being rained out for three weekends in a row...sheep shearing day is finally here. I am really excited that I am lucky enough to be included! I was told over the phone last night that lunch will be provided before we start and to bring a pair of heavy duty kitchen gloves for picking burrs from the fleeces. I am truly excited about helping to clean fleeces! It will be my first time to see the whole process. I plan to pack my camera and take loads of pictures for the blog. So here is the group of ladies that I will be spending time with all day today! Do they look excited???

It was smelly, but really fun. I love learning how things start and why they end being what they are. Hopefully when I have a few moments I will post my pictures from the day and everyone can see the fleeces before they are cleaned. Then tell what happens to them afterwards. I think I will be a regular yearly visitor!
