BEST SHEARING TEAM…….. Okay, so what if we are related right? For those who don’t know us personally, Luke is married to our daughter Jessica and they have 3 of the cutest kids this side of the planet. Clayton is our son and since he’s single, I can’t boast of any cute little grand children. Both are hard-working, dedicated young men who work well together.
Not too long ago, Luke sheared our herd of ewes. Clayton stopped over later in the day to help out. We thank them both, but mostly Luke, since he did most of the herd this time!
Since I only get to see the guys shear once a year, I was very surprised at how fast they had become. Luke was actually “taking his time” since he was on the home turf. There was no need to hurry. I would have liked to watch all day, but it was too cold for my taste.
Cael came down to see his daddy hard at work and I wonder if he really understands that this is how his father makes a living. Luke and Clayton travel many miles and get to meet some really unique people while shearing sheep.
There were 68 head of sheep done on this particular day. We are gearing up for the next lambing season which should start on April 1; hope we have some good luck. The following are photos taken during and after the shearing on Feb. 23.
Life is good by golly!
