For some reason I only took one picture of the process, and I see that last year I also posted a pic of Tom and Cashew here, http://lifeatperiwinkle.blogspot.com/2007/05/shearing-day.html,
Here are the fleeces after the flock, (unwillingly in some cases) gave them up.
They were quite crabby with one another after shearing, so there was lots of head butting and posturing, and that's just the girls with the lambs, who were completely flummoxed by the change in their Mums.
Marmite was consoled by a tasty morsel of Hazelnut leaves while the rabbits look on, concerned, "Are we next ?", but no, I have hopes of plucking them rather than shaving them for their contribution to the Periwinkle fibre fund.
Everyone got used to each other pretty quickly and peace once again reigned in the meadow.
