In The Paper!

Kristen, the other girl at the shearing class, and myself got in the newspaper! None of the four guys did. I feel a bit bad for them.

One thing I don't like about newspapers is they always have a way of changing the story. I told the news reporter that I've had sheep for 9 or 10 years and hired a shearer for the first few years. His max flock was 15  and my flock out grew the shearer's max and then he quite. I learned to shear with blades with the sheep  in a stand or standing tied next to a fence. I was taking the class to learn how to sharpen blades (I had a horrible time finding anyone who could even get a start of an edge on them and did not know how to do it my self) as he mentioned, and also to learn the pattern.


  1. Wow!!!! Good for you Laura. Maybe I'll have you help do mine too!!! :)
