Sheep Shearing 2015

It's always a big event at the Red Farmhouse.


This year, we even had a tour trolley
bring a group from Guthrie, Oklahoma.
The yarn store that carries our Jacob wool yarn, 
Sealed with a Kiss, brought a group.


It was great fun
even though it was a little cold.


The farm visitors watched the shearing,
helped to catch the animals, and skirt fleece too.


Our 17 sheep got shots, hoof trimming
and of course, shearing.
The 3 alpaca & the guard llama
got the full treatment too!


All the animals are ready for spring now!
They look so different without their fleece.
