2nd Shearing of the Season and 1st Fiber Fest Info!

We had our second shearing Sunday, April 13th. Erika had rounded up Ghenni, Cersei, Clodae, Bidderdoo, and Codswallop into the barn for their turn with the shearer. WP_20140413_14_44_44_Pro                                   And, one by one their beautiful woolly coats came off. WP_20140413_15_17_30_ProWP_20140413_14_52_48_ProI am so amazed by Ghenni’s coat. She has such a lovely cream wool on the outside but she’s covered in spots underneath! WP_20140413_15_51_58_ProWe, once again, have some beautiful fleeces to send to the mill but I will wait until after the Upper Valley Fiber Fest May 17th to ship them. I plan to bring one or two with me to show everyone how wonderful they are in the raw. WP_20140413_15_58_20_Pro WP_20140413_16_30_17_Pro WP_20140413_16_28_21_ProOh, and a couple of these guys are coming to the Fest, too! Hoping to find new forever homes for them to mow and provide wonderful Icelandic fiber. They are super sweet boys and they deserve it!WP_20140413_16_33_22_Pro
