GREETINGS

Yesterday was a wild day with warmth and sunshine early on to heavy rains and high winds when we started shearing.  Then cold.  Today its sunny but cold and windy with snow showers and some rain showers in the afternoon.

Firs was Marley, we may have to do him twice a year certainly his nails got long this year so I will have to do them in the summer and maybe give him a trim at that time.  His fleece was very long.  We put him outside when he was done and onto the next which was Carol K. , then Maude, Lucy and then Sally was last.
