So now I have 37 fleeces to deal with! In previous years I have sheared 3-5 sheep per day once or twice per week starting in February and ending in March. This gave me plenty of time and room to dry, skirt, and then package fleeces before the next shearing. But this year I have 37 all at once. I know with other flocks this is a regular occurrence, but I really do not have the space for this, particularly with my step-son moving back home. So we have fleeces almost everywhere!

And we have the electric heat going in each of these rooms with the windows cracked. I cannot wait to see the electric bill.
