While I could not arrive in time for the start of shearing day at Double A Ranch this past weekend, I was able to take part in the last half. I automatically felt like I should be moving sheep, handling wool or sweeping floors but there were many extra hands around to help and so I was encouraged to visit and take photographs. It was a very pleasant change and position to be in.

I love this pair of ewes, looking as though they might be conversing on the happenings.
The wool is highly valued and every shorn fleece lands on the skirting table first. This is one of the gorgeous, natural brown Romney fleeces available for sale (just contact Double A Ranch on Facebook if interested). I love using the Romney fibre for needle felting.
