Here are a few pictures from the gazillions that I took -
This is Tiny, just about done. About 30 seconds after this was snapped, she took off like a rocket. It was her first experience with shearing, and she wasn't impressed.
Here's Smoky getting his mani-pedi. He didn't like shearing much, either.
He thought the whole thing was undignified.
"Look what that bad man did to me..."
I tried to get a good picture of Orion and Merlin post-shearing, but they wouldn't let me get any closer than this...
One thing we confirmed with the fleece removal is that all the girls are pregnant. Here's Tiny and Onyx, both a bit bulgy.
And a closeup of Onyx, showing that, once again, she's as big as a house. I hope she doesn't have triplets again. (Or from the size of her, quadruplets...)
The final tally? Eight, that's eight, bags of fleece out on the deck.
I need to start spinning faster...
