shorn


Here are the girls, all 'naked' like.



Babs, did not get sheared yesterday. Babs is a Barbados, a hair breed of sheep.This breed has hair type wool, compared to the other  wool breeds. Basically means, that they don't need shearing. Frank would prefer me to raise a hair breed than a wool breed. He said it would save money, not having to shear. I gently remind him, yes it would, but than I would not get as much for the wethers at the market (hair breeds sell less per pound compared to the wool breeds) and I wouldn't get the wool to process.
