The sun shone (honestly) not for long but long enough for Jumble and Jelly to be
enticed into the hurdles. They are rather partial to sheep nuts, not off the
ground of course, only by hand!
So the shearing began. Poor Jelly wasn't completely convinced being wrestled to the ground by
a stranger to have her fleece removed - the indignation! Although a stranger to her
Steven Bennett's help was very much appreciated by us, we have
not tried our hand at shearing yet and decided that taking up an offer of help
would be a good idea! Jelly had no idea of how she could have looked without his help.
But here she is, Jelly sporting her new summer look - very trendy I think.
Soon to follow was Jumble, who looks rather proud of his appearance.
I'm not sure it was entirely fair of our two pigs (Millie & Amelia) to stand
and laugh but by now I think Jumble & Jelly were just relieved that the ordeal was over.
