Shearing is Finished

The last of the sheep have been sheared.  We cut these three of from the flock, and moved them to the shearing area inside a triangle made with 3 ranch panels. Yes we moved the 3 panel pen with them in it. We call it the flying wedge. It has been handy for moving smaller groups (up to 14), where some are not used to a halter.


They each took their turns being sheared, and were returned to the moveable pen. Two of our volunteer shepherds are shearers, and they have been splitting the shearing responsibilities. There are some unique situations and solutions when caring for sheep in an industrial site. like using a 400lb steel sawhorse.


And when the shearing was done, we moved them back to the flock.


Can you tell which volunteer shepherd works with them the most?
