Sheep Shearing at Hubbert Farms

 My beautiful Finn ewe Lacey....how many lambs this year...3, 4, 5, 6? She had 4 last year.

 Yearling 56%Gotland ewe Cloudy. Maybe twins? She still has about 3 weeks to go.

 Brandy (above) is 50% Gotland and it looks like she has 4 lambs this year.

 Finn ram Casper (above and below). You can really see those badger markings after he is shorn.
His fleece will be on my spinning wheel in no time flat!
 Moorit Finn ram Jasper. Another fleece for me hehe!!

 Above we have Gracie's first shear....Gracie is 62% Gotland and I can't wait to spin this!
 Casper's fleece above on the skirting table.
 Where does the LGD Maca begin and the discarded fleece end?? We put some wool in her doghouse for later :-)
 The 'girls' all sheared and feeling frisky!
 Mini the Llama doesn't recognise the ewes without their wooly fleeces.
Sweet Bailey kickin up her heels!!

Harvest time is alway such a great time! Our alpacas will be shorn in late April. Have fun fondling and spinning those gorgeous fleeces!
