With all the rain we have been having lately, we were worried that it would rain over the weekend, and so made hurried preparations to bring the sheep into the barn, because there is nothing wetter than a wet sheep, and that makes for a difficult shearing. We were lucky and got a dry weekend, so shearing went smoothly. We love our shearer, John Sanchez. He is a lot of fun, fast and gentle with the sheep. Here he is shearing Panda, a ram who weighs easily twice as much as John! He rolled Panda around like he weighed nothing, and had his whole fleece off in under 3 minutes.
