Our ewes lost their wool coats over the weekend.
A few minutes, a $5 haircut and a year's worth of fleece is removed.
It must feel nice after the warm weather we've been having.
We'll use the wool to insulate more portable pasture shelters. This year we are building multi-purpose units that will hold 3 farrowing nests or litters of growing pigs. It's nice that our sheep are so generous with their wool.
