Shearing at Rising Meadow Farm, Misc Images


While watching Kevin Ford work was a definite pleasure, the shearing weekend was by no means a one-man job. Along with Kevin, top blade shearer Emily Chamelin from Maryland did her share of the shearing as did Joy Moore who was learning from two masters. Of course, Rising Meadow Farm owners Ann and Ron Fay were there moving sheep and inspecting, weighing and cleaning the fleeces with help from the Walls family.

Hi Dan, a friend sent me a link to this post, as she knows I like all things sheep (I had posted some photos of ewes and lambs yesterday). I love the photo of the chicken sitting on the ewe's back! Regards Anne (from the glorious Scottish Borders)

Anne, thanks for the very kind comments. Thinking about being in the Scottish Borders right now does sound glorious. Cheers.
