|These are the clippers I am used to using to shear the sheep.|
Below are the clippers that most people use to shear their sheep. I was always afraid of them, because they are big, heavy, and just plain...scary lookin'.
I think Petunia liked this method more than the hand clippers, despite their loudness. They vibrate and the head gets nice and warm. That combined with the combing and the resulting fewer nicks and cuts made for a much nicer experience.
I should have taken a "before" picture!
If I blanketed my sheep the wool would be great for spinning or felting. When it gets full of hay though, it's not worth the work of picking all the little pieces out.
Hard to believe that all came from one little sheep!
