Shearing Day--Second try

We're sticking to our original raincheck (snowcheck?) date of 11:00 a.m., March 13 for our Winter Sheep Shearing Day 2008.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, to just watch or to lend a hand. Volunteers should come about 10:30 for orientation; we expect to start shearing about 11:00.

We're making progress on the circle drive, but the ground condition is hard to predict. Please walk, ride a bike, take the bus, carpool--whatever you can do to minimize traffic. We'll try to have a parking volunteer. Please be sure not to block the main drive, so that the shearer can drive his truck back to the barn to unload equipement. He'll be shearing at another farm before ours--one of our "daughter" flocks--and then another daughter flock later in the day.

If you'd like to join us for lunch after the shearing, bring your own table setting and something potluckish. We'll have a big pot-of-something (featuring lamb, of course) cooking while we shear.

See you there!
