Sheep Sheering '09

For all of you sheep enthusiasts, here are some pictures and a video from the sheep sheering that took place yesterday (my birthday!).

Blu is the sheep getting sheered in the first 2 pictures. That's our house right behind Silas, so you can see, we were right in the middle of the action.

This is Bart. All of the sheep, including Bart, seem to dislike laying on their sides, which takes place towards the end of the process, much more so than being flipped into a sitting position. When sitting upright, they more or less go limp.This is Azure, pre-sheering, in all his woolly glory:

And the after shot:Last but not least, here's a video detailing much of the process (as well as the voice of my neighbor's son trying in vein to get my kiddo to play with him).
