The Long and the Short of It

We started with the lawn chair method

But had to progress to the halter to get the haircut completed

Chone put up a bit more fuss, and went straight to the halter.

Crazy little bugger was ok through the shoulders and back,, but as soon as I got near his little tush, he turned into a bucking bronco!
We wrestled a while, but it was going nowhere, so I finally let him go and now he’s got a messy, shaggy haircut with a straggly butt.

Oh well. Suppose I’ll get him cleaned up later. (I think he kind of likes being a a mess)

    Methinks Chone has a very vivid memory of something that happened in that neighborhood of his long, long ago….

    Great shots that made me feel like I was there. Now I know how you do your shearing. Thanks.

      good to hear from you Bruce! yep, that’s how it happens. sometimes smoothly, sometimes not, but one way or another, I get the wool off!

    Ahhhh. What good sheeple!

    How’s the sock monkey sweater coming? I’ve started a sock monkey vest. . . commercial yarn though.

      the monkey sweater is coming along pretty well, but is just round and round and round right now- almost to the point where I join the sleeves and body. the knitting will get more interesting once I’m into the shoulder and neck shaping!

    Next time maybe slip a valium in his treats – it probably tickled…

    We sheared today – the fleeces look a lot better than the girls do, but NO nicks – I was happy about that. They just look a little scraggly…T.

      always nice when you can get through with no nicks! so where do you send your fleeces for processing now that Gretchen has moved away?
