So this is the other end of the sheep shearing day, which was somewhat longer than expected. Without going into detail there were ‘issues’ with escapees, who were utterly determined not to be stripped of their dignity. As a result, we have one very obedient Jacob who is now free of his winter overcoat, but more frustratingly we have one ewe called ‘Leah’, who was utterly determined to tire us all out in the chase, which is somewhat opposite to the meaning of her name being weary! So 3 hours later, the shearers gave up, concerned that she really was tired and agreed to come back tomorrow, at 7:30am and catch her unawares over breakfast! Meanwhile, here are photos of Jacob’s shenanigans.
