Tomorrow is Shearing Day, our busiest day of the year. So today we are quietly getting ready. The sheep came into the barn to eat their hay as usual, but today the door is shut behind them, the llamas are kept outside, and they will spend the rest of the day and night in the barn not getting rained on. They do not seem to realize what is going to happen next. They are calm cool and collected. I think tomorrow when the shearing machine starts up, they will realize.
So I am assembling the various equipment, supplies and medications we will need for shearing 36 sheep and 2 goats. I hope I am not forgetting anything. It is supposed to be stormy tomorrow with a 60% chance of snow.
While I was in the barn, I finally saw the peahen and peafowl together. This is a first. So I took a few photos of them before they got annoyed with me. This one didn’t have the best focus, but I liked their poses.
