  1. Was Raven taking a nap?! Looks like Raven is quite comfortable laying there on the ground. It must feel good to get rid of all that wool during summer.

    • J > I shear in an unconventional way, with the sheep in a more natural pose, and less subject to restraint or force. After putting up a bit of resistance when first ‘nabbed’, they gradually settle down, and by the time I’ve finished they’re often completely relaxed – and enjoying the cool air and freedom from that hot and itchy wool! [As the old wool starts to be cast from the skin, it begins to felt, and that’s when it becomes very itchy.] Raven was never a bottle-fed ‘pet’ lamb, but has become very confident and comfortable with me.
