Bad Hair Day
These gals (ewes pronounced yous) look like they are having a bad hair day! But their wool kept them toasty warm during the winter. They already have their haircut appointment (for sheep its called shearing) made for April 25th.
Can you imagine having to wear a wool winter coat when it's 90 degrees out? That's why we have them sheared. It also helps them during the birthing process. Upsy Daisy, the lighter colored ewe, is due to lamb in May. She produced twins last year. We'll have to wait and see if she has twins again this year!
