Shearing photos as sheep strip off

As promised, some pictures of the sheep shearing extravaganza that took place at Fordhall Farm last week. As the sheep form an 'orderly queue' the shearers warm up with a good strong cup of tea and flapjack.
Once they got to work there was no stopping the crew and they sheared over 70 sheep within an hour. Fantastic work lads!!
Other news from the farm - the Summer Newsletters are back and volunteers are merrily (under duress) stuffing 6,000 envelopes for you all. We hope to be posting them out next week - hold onto that excitment!
Don't forget - upcoming events include: Volunteer Weekend 9-10th June; Open Farm Sunday 10th June 11-4 (great fun, lots of self-led activities and an excuse to walk around the beautiful nature trail); Volunteer working day June 30th; and the BIG ONE Fordhall Family Fun Day on July 1st.
See you all soon!
