Happy sheep

The sheep are sporting their new haircuts and loving the green grass.

The fruit trees are doing pretty good this year if the high winds will just die down.
We even have apples on our new apple trees. Apples aren't a fruit that normally grow in central Texas but we are trying. This poor tree is doing great despite the sheep's attempt to kill it by chewing off its bark.

Sheep Shearing Day

For the first time since we bought the Tunis sheep we decided 18 was too many to shear by ourselves. So we hired a very nice man to come and do them for us. Tony travels all over the Southwest shearing sheep. I don't know how he does it so quickly.

The sheep all look happier and so much cleaner and cooler.

Here are some of the first ones snacking on some hay bales for a treat.
