Early Wednesday morning.
The ewes, coats off, waited patiently for Kevin to arrive.
Kevin Ford, Master Blade Shearer, travels down to NC from Massachusetts and will shear his way back north. Kevin has been coming to the farm for 13 years to shear my sheep. He shears using the old time hand blades which means a quiet shearing, the only sounds those of us talking and the occasional low baa of a sheep.
The ewes in their brilliant, white newly shorn wool.
