Shearing Time for the Big Guys

I pulled the 'big boys' up to the barn from their pasture the other day to get them ready for their summer shearing, and the subsequent 'adjustment' period afterwards.
It's just been so hot that I delayed their summer buzz-cuts until it is slightly cooler, so hopefully they don't over heat when they are all put back together.

Hanging Out in the Barn

With the hot days of summer already upon us, the lambs have decided that it is far better to hang out in the barn, in the shade, and enjoy the luxury of the breeze coming from the big drum fans, verses the alternative of glaring sun, heat, and swarms of bugs.

On The Road Again

Beechtrees 'BenNevis' was selected as the founding sire for a recently established Bluefaced Leicester flock in Missouri. Three Bluefaced Leicester ewes were also selected to travel with him. Ben was the perfect gentlemen as he was inspected, shorn, weighed and wormed, before he was loaded up along with the girls for the long road trip today.
We look forward to hearing about his adjustment to his new farm and flock.
