Time to shear!
Well, we finally decided to buy a set of sheep shears and a trimming stand since we have a LOT more to shear this year and the horse clippers really had to strain to do 8 last year. I found the clippers on Ebay from a seller in HongKong. It was very reasonably priced, though the shipping cost was pricey.
One of our ewes "Spring" was the first to get to try out both. Bob let me do the honors. The new clippers are BIG but they do the job! And the stand sure helps on the back strain.
