Shearing by hand

As a complete contrast to Mondays shearing experience, a local small holder called in this morning to let us know his 12 sheep were being hand sheared if we wanted the wool. So, again, we dropped everything and walked up to take a look.

What a contrast!

The poor sheep still have their legs bound together and certainly don't seem to enjoy the process, but it did appear to be much more relaxed.

I think I prefer this way, although it may take a while to get enough for our roof!

And again we had our own personal Springwatch - yes Dave, when you pull that face we can see the resemblance.
