Trimming Old Sheep

Bob before trimmingToday I trimmed the wool from three of our seven old skinny sheep.  In March it was too cold to have them sheared, but now the weather is getting warmer, and I do not want them to get too hot. Plus I want them to grow wool back before winter.  Above is Bob before trimming, and below is him afterwards.

Bob is one of my first lambs born in 2000.  Here is a photo of me holding him as a lamb.

He was the first lamb I had out of my all time favorite sheep Babette.  Her descendants are the friendliest of our sheep and have wool I love to spin (maybe because I learned with her wool).  Here’s a photo of Babette.
