Baaa baaa, bald sheep
Thursday evening my farrier came to trim the horses' feet, then changed hats/tools to shear the woollies. I didn't take any photos during; too busy trying to keep the flow going onto and off the shearing mat. DH got stall fabric down in the corner stall to give me a holding area for the sheared boys, so I didn't have to worry about getting them all coated immediately.
The girls got kicked out to pasture until the shearer was done. (Sarai will be rooed later, and I'll have to scissor-shear Bramble.) Then naked sheep got fresh coats, everyone got a dose of Valbazen since membranes were looking rather pale, and fleeces were stacked in the tackroom awaiting skirting.
March definitely left like a lamb at . . .
