Bossy is looking huge, she probably has 4-5 inches of wool on her.
In the past we have done the shearing ourselves. But it is time consuming, and to be honest we are not quite the best at it. This year we decided to hire a local shearer, what would have taken us a weekend of work took him about two hours. It was great to have a professional come as he was willing to help teach Jesse how to shear quickly and even fixed our trimmers.
I was at my day job when the shearing occurred so I only have before and after pictures, no action shots.
