I have to report that no sheep clipping has happened since the last EWESletter, I was sure I would be able to report how the clipping went, but alas a combination of weather and the clipping team being a man down is delaying things. It's getting desperate now, the sheep are loosing their fleece naturally at an alarming rate, not good when I need that fleece to turn into yarn!
Some of you may have seen on social media that I bought myself a pony, for those who haven't yet seen him, let me introduce John, he is a 14hh cob and is unbroken, I've started the breaking in process and he is a quick learner, hopefully by the time the next EWESletter reaches your inbox he will be rideable, and I'll have pictures to show you.
The sheep are now clipped, the latest we have ever clipped at Hawkshaw HQ.
More on this in the next EWESletter.
