Sheep Striptease


Half Nekkid Mutton

As it turns out....shearing a sheep...not so different from grooming a cocker spaniel after all.

I didn't do it like the pros do. I didn't flip him on his back or take it off in one piece. We took lots of breaks to cool the blades down and let him catch is breath, but I think he actually enjoyed it. I basically just started at his head like I would a very matted cocker and peeled him out of it like a banana.

So now I have a pile of discarded sheep's clothing. Not sure what to do with it at this point but will stuff it in a bag to keep it separate from the next pile of sheep's clothing that is to come.

And that's going to be the hard part. Mutton is my buddy. He comes up to get his butt scratched and is a general snugglepuss as far as sheep go. He's got a spot under his chin that if you scratch just right, he'll close his eyes and moan. Slutty, slutty boy.

Chops is a different matter. He's not really into the "touching" thing at all.

    I need to borrow the big 4H clippers so that I can shear my two Angora goats. Up till now I've done it with scissors and a helper (to sit on the goat) but they're too big--too much wool! It takes forever with scissors--

    My Bill looks like a dustmop with feet and horns...

    Mutton looks relieved. Hey, I just gotta ask since we're in the ever-so-slow process of building our place, is your board and batten cedar? How do you like it? Sorry for the total non sequitur, but I really dig the siding!

    Thanks, Rosie! We have a bunch of little sawmills around here, including some custom places we're planning on taking some maples and cherries that will have to be cut down. I know one guys will do custom milling for 20 cents a board foot, so his own rough cut would have to be pretty cheap. Thanks again!
