I did not take the time to take pics this weekend. But I did manage to get 6 of my sheep sheared. Yunan rooed so I had previously harvested her fleece and it is already washed and partially carded. The others I did across two days. After taking off the fleeces I can tell I have at least 3 ewes who are bred. UTS Brocade and UTS Clara are both registered shetlands and are bred to UTS Gunpowder a very nice ram that I leased from Theresa in December. Also obviously bred is my shetland/BFL mule ewe Dolly. I really like Dolly's fleece so I'm hoping she has a least one ewe lamb that I can keep. Next weekend I need to catch up on the bunny shearing!
