Shearing at Equinox Farm
Regular WOVEMBERISTS will know of Equinox Farm and SARA DUNHAM, who has contributed much to WOVEMBER over the years. Sara lives in Kentucky and keeps a small mixed flock of Jacob sheep, Border Cheviots, Border Leicesters, Cotswolds, and various fine, medium and longwool colorful crossbreds. All of Sara’s sheep have their own incredible personalties and her blog is a real tribute to her woolly pals and her love of them.
For our SHEARING WOOL theme we asked Sara if we could share her wonderful images of this year’s clip. The shearer in the images is Bill Haudenschield.
Maisie gets shorn standing up – not an easy feat for the shearer. In this short video Sara explains why it is important that Maisie gets this treatment.
In another short film we see Jacobs cross, Baaxter Black, get his first haircut. In our next post tonight Sara will talk us through the sorting of Baaxter’s fleece.
