I am posting a few pictures from yesterday when we sheared our small flock which is a motley crew of corriedales and a mix finn/babydoll breed.
This is Thorin, a corriedale awaiting shearing. He is our big guy and is not very happy to be in a small pen.
And here he is on the left, also not very happy after what he just went through. (they do recover quickly)
Below are my finn/babiedolls. The darker one, Belladonna, is the mama of the white ones, Pippin and Merry.
Here they are after their very first haircut. (they were one year old last month). I am very interested in how their wool will felt. Babydoll's fleece is not that great for wet felting, however, I am hoping that the finn in them will counteract that.
