shearing

Because pics, apparently

So it seems my new handpiece with its 320 watts of raw power is going to change things a bit for my shearing. It doesn't get bogged in the wool when I try to go faster like the old one did, so I was able to go quite a lot faster and thus finished Saturday's lot by lunchtime.

This sheep wants me to put her wool back on:

And they paid me double for Smudge because they reckon she makes two sheep really...

So, done by lunchtime and everything went very smoothly. It was just what the doctor ordered and now I'm not feeling quite so hoha about shearing any more, which is nice.

There you go, a sheep post with pictures.
