The boys arrived early to shear the flock of sheep. Before I knew it, they were done just as the early lunch was prepared……..delicious pizza! This year I never made it out to watch the “boys” work. Seems like they get quicker and quicker every time they shear. They average around 2 to 3 minutes per animal. One can imagine what kind of shape a shearer has to be in to be able to accomplish such a task. Anyhow, when it was all said and done, in a few short hours, the guys had removed the fine wool from 68 bred ewes. The kids took the photos for me this year so I didn’t get as many as I’d have liked. The wool is excellent quality Ramboulet.
Luke will be kept busy shearing throughout the coming months. If you need some sheep sheared give Luke a call at 507-829-8546!

God has blessed these two young men in so many ways and being able to make a living in the country is just one of those blessings.
