Getting Nekked

We've a family thing today and tomorrow is the "shearing of the sheep." When the shearer had time I wasn't ready and when I was ready he had no time... But tomorrow's the day... Moving the rams into a small pen by myself will be the hard part but separating the ewes and lambs is no piece of cake either... EVERYBODY will be bawling and wailing and baaaaaaaaaaaahing. DH always has a commitment when I need him.

I want to start milking and haven't been able to until they are sheared as it's unsanitary....It's exciting to have things moving along again...I was so afraid the ewes would dry up before.I could milk and they are probably close as the lambs are huge..... No posting for a couple days.... Wish I had someone taking photos. But if anyone was standing around with a camera, I'd put them to work....Wish me luck....

WOW, your a busy woman. So do you make cheese with the milk? Or actually drink it? That is probably a dumb question, but I really do not know:)

I hope you have great success.
