Far Away

I'm far enough away from spring shearing that we can all laugh about it now. When you're in the middle of it? Not so much.

Woolliam got his first hair cut this morning. I would have liked to let it grow just a bit more, but he's so hot and the forecast is for 88 tomorrow. He did just fine for a wee lad getting his first trim, but when he tried to climb into my helper's lap like a scared puppy, I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite Far Side cartoons.



That would be Woolliam, fainted dead away in the back of the class.

Far Side has the best sheep comics!Don't you just love them? My lambs are still hot and bothered, but sale day is next week and after that, the keepers are in for the same treat as Woolliam!

Poor Woolliam. I'm the same way with needles.
