Spring (Shearing) is Here!

posted in: farm, sheep, Uncategorized 0

The Cormo sheep have been sheared and I will be skirting fleeces for the next couple of days.  Most of the fleeces have been spoken for, but there may be a couple of extras.  I will send out a newsletter with information about remaining fleeces (if there are any).

I took the above photo when the ewes came in from the pasture in the evening.  The pastures are very lush, so I do not need to feed the sheep grain.  I give them a just a little grain to get them to come in paddock near the house at night.  The coyotes don’t tend to come too close to the house.  My Great Pyrenees does a great job of protecting the sheep from pedators, but I feel better knowing they are not too far from the house during the night…
