sheep day

01Jun09

Yesterday was sheep-shearing day at Maplewood Farm.  We fed some bunnies, watched a duck-herding demo and got front row seats in the shearing tent.  Of course, I dreamed about my sheep farm the entire time.

The kids were only mildly traumatized.  Mr. Sheep got a shaving cut and bled all over his chest.  That, and he was pulled around by the arms.  This led to a long conversation about how they might shave a sheep.

The girls wore wool jewels, in honour of the occasion.
