We are having such a hard time finding a shearer. Does anyone else ever have this problem? We only have 6 sheep that need sheared, guess that's just not worth it for anyone to come out. We have someone who says he will do it and he will call next week but we heard that from another guy a couple weeks ago and finally had to call him. He was anxious to pass on the phone number of another guy. We'll see. Sheep shearing is really not something we want to learn to do ourselves. Maybe if/when we have 30 head they will be more willing.
I had the opportunity tonight to take our 8 yo niece to a Girl Scout function. That was just plain culture shock for the mother of 3 boys! We made a picture frame and watched the movie "Flicka". We had a wonderful time and I was flattered that she asked me to go with her.
We are supposed to pick up our new bred Kinder doe tomorrow. The woman is supposed to have her papers ready to give me too. I guess if she doesn't have the papers I'm going to pass, just don't trust people very much anymore. I'll try to post some pics if I can. The weather has been very overcast this week and not very good for picture taking.
