Sheep Sheering

We have three sheep on the farm. They are really considered working pets! They keep the pastures mowed when the pigs aren't in them and sometimes they keep the pigs company. Lately the hens have been visiting the sheep because each lamb was sheered recently. The Lady Lambs received the royal spa therapy! They had their toes trimmed, their wool clipped, and they were even given a vitamin booster. Some girls just don't care to have their hair done, and the booster helps them unwind at the end of a hectic day. Sounds kind of like a cocktail, huh!?

This lamb is named Snowball. She gets so fluffy full of wool, that if she isn't sheered within a year, Snowball can't get up! Her wool is heavy and thick and she's like a turtle on her back. Not to worry, all of the Ladies are fresh and clean now, and ready for the summer heat.
