Here’s what a sheep looks like after we’re done giving it a haircut, poor guy:
And here’s what a baby who won’t nap looks like:

About Jennie Cooper

I'm the mother of eight children, the wife of a retired soldier, and a newly minted farmer. I spend my days fairly productively, home educating our children, raising large quantities of food for several families, and volunteering in our community. I read entire novels a page at a time in the comfort of my bathroom. I tell people I'm Catholic just because they find it so shocking. I think there's nothing so exciting as a thunderstorm coming in. It doesn't bother me at all that my dog barks outside my bedroom window all night. And I rather enjoy being 40. I didn't think I would, but 40 is pretty good.

      Alas, we were not able to get the wool off in anything like a usable form. Also, this breed is primarily for meat production, so their wool is not as suitable. Not that this would have stopped me from trying anyway!

    I’m pretty sure the sheep feel so good they don’t mind how they look. And unless there is a mirror in the barn…

    Poor Evie, poor mama. Is she getting teeth?

      I’m sure she’s teething. She’s the right age. She’s drooly. She’s always sticking her fingers in her mouth, even while she’s nursing. She’s pooping more. And she really likes it when I rub her gums. She sleeps well at night, but I sure could use a break during the day!
