SHEARING SOON!

Our small flock of Bond sheep are growing some beautiful fleeces this year! I'm still waiting to hear from the shearer about a date for shearing, but hopefully it will be in November. Once the sheep are shorn it will take me a week or two to class, weigh and photograph each fleece and post the info and pics here and on Shiloh Wool's Facebook page. Stay tuned......!
