extremely hard . . .

Nolan has been such a great help around the farm this spring.  With working full time, he has still managed to help in so many ways.

First, setting up some movable fencing to allow the animals to graze off some of the rich clover on the garden spots.  And then last Friday helping me with the sheep shearing.  It was our first time shearing sheep and we had a wondeful teacher helping us along the way.  Flint has been working with sheep for several years and made the job seem so easy.  However, for both of us, it was extremely hard!

Ildi will be sending the wool off to get cleaned and carded, then it goes into her new spinning wheel to be made into yarn. YEAH!

Sounds very promising. Home grown wool! And how is everything else going?
