I sheared Barnabus this weekend. Without all that fluff, he’s the speediest lamb in the pasture! No, not really; Duchess and Lady could probably run rings around him. But he is running around hopping a lot more.
The reactions of the other sheep were hilarious. They had to sniff him thoroughly before they were convinced he was really Barney and not an Evil Impostor. He’s so much smaller now!
“Dude, what happened to you?”
His face could use some more trimming, but I didn’t want to trim such a tight area with the giant hand shears. I’ll clean him up with scissors some time, now that the usable part of the fleece is safely tucked away.
Now I just have to figure out how to wash it…
