Wool Week at Boulderneigh

With shearing scheduled for Tuesday, today was high time to tackle some toe trims and take some fleece samples, with an eye to who I can roo this year. I started with the ewes this morning. Pretty pleased with myself for getting samples collected, photographed, and ready to mail for micron testing. Reserve your favorite(s) now; first reserved, first skirted and prepped to ship!

Bree (I rooed her sample, but she needs a bit more time to loosen):

Babette (looks roo-able, but fleece is firmly attached):

Sarai, my reliably roo-able ewe, was also very itchy – especially on her neck ;-):

Blaise (shot with and without flash; hard to capture but breathtaking!):


A certain little someone quietly inserted herself between my legs, blissfully happy for any attention that came her way:

Sweet Bacall can also be reserved, along with Bogie and Butler. Others will be added to the sales list later; feel free to inquire.

That's it for now from . . .

All those fleeces look stunning - I'd be hard pressed to part with any of those fleeces if I were you! But then, like me, you probably already have too much fleece and too little space!
