last two sheep unshorn
I was a purebred sheep producer for almost 35 years breeding, showing and selling both Montadale and Oxford sheep for meat and wool. I miss my small sheep flock that I sold in 2011, as I move (literally and figuratively) to the next chapter of my life. This shot is of the last two sheep I held onto before I sold them. I never thought I would give up the sheep.

Here are the same two sheep after shearing. My favorite shearer is getting older as am I. I thought it might be the time to move on. Breaks my heart, this getting old.
