Helping Out

Guess who came in to be crutched today.....Bella. She was my baby lamb two years ago! Now she is all grown up, she had already had one baby 'Sparkles' and now she is pregnant with another one! I love Bella, she still remembers me. She loves a rub on the face.

Baby a Mum to be!

I helped in the shed today, it is very busy. Mum and Dad can always do with an extra pair of hands. All the wool has to be swept away from the shearers and sorted in to good and bad, the good wool is clean and the bad wool is dirty from the ewes' bottoms, it must be kept separate.
Dad has to pen up the sheep with the dogs. The shearers call out "SHEEPO" when they need more sheep, they keep Dad very busy because it does not take long to crutch one sheep and he needs to keep the pens full.
