Ida before and after

In full fleecey glory

And after.

She is trying her best to put a brave face on it.

Ida has been off with me ever since she has been shorn. We have shared some sweet moments in the last couple of months. The process of shearing is brutal. I am trying to build trust into my relationship with each of them but they are all annoyed with me. Even a week later. I will keep trying. Accepting that it will take time to rebuild the trust. I am left thinking I need to learn so much so I can shear them myself next year. I’d love to hear from you about your experiences with shearing yourself or how your animals react before/during/after shearing?
