Not the weather for it....again!
As you can see in the background of the photo, Paul is on duty in the birthing paddock, sitting on the field bench watching for any signs of Camilla providing some action. We do have a rota and Sam (the alpaca cat) kindly does his shift too.
We had been a little concerned about having a shearing date for early June as our two imported girls; Galaxy and Hoity Toity already have at least 14 months of fleece. However it is still far too cold here for taking any clothes off never mind going naked (we have had frost at night just this week!) This is just mad for May; Last year we were worrying about the effects of the heat. Lets just hope for better weather on the east coast Debbie (shearing today)
