I sheared our male sheep, Jeebs, on Sunday. Kirsten held him by the horns while I straddled his back making him sit on the ground. I used some of the old fashion shears that look like a huge pair of scissors. It was not easy. This is the first time we ever tried shearing so it took us about 2 hours. When we rolled him over to try to get his belly he fought so hard we couldn't keep him down. So he still has a wooly belly, but oh well, we got the majority of the fleece. I think we could do it quicker next time because by the end of it I felt like I had gotten the hang of it. Here he is looking all pissed off at me. The llama was a bit freaked out by Jeebs without his coat on.
