More shearing

We finished with the shearing of the older ewes so we've started working on the yearlings. Besides shearing we are trimming hooves and tattooing them. That is a new experience, I'm not sure who is wearing more green, Raquel or me... The tattoo is a number in her right ear that matches her registration with the National Tunis Sheep Registry. The big spot on her neck is where I squeezed out too much ink and it dripped on her. I decided to make a nice big X so we won't have any trouble telling her apart from the others for a while.
