The Best Laid Plans of Sheep and Men....

....often go awry....
Yesterday was supposed to be sheep shearing day (you know how I look forward to this day every year), but the sheep shearer was a NO SHOW!!!!  Emma and Lumi spent the day at "Aunt" Liz's farm waiting for him to come but to no avail.  Liz generously spoiled them by feeding them grain...isn't that what Aunties are for????...of course, they just get plain-old hay here!  So they had a great day of socializing with their peers but came home as shaggy as ever.  Here's what they look like:
 
 Emma

 Lumi

In the long run, I guess it all worked out for the best because it dipped down to 29 degrees last night and the last thing I want to worry about is a couple of shivering sheep!

They are beautiful. I am guessing it takes them a little while to get used to their "new look" after the shearing?

So glad the sheep are warm but they have to be thinking....am I do for a hair cut? Is this getting too long and matted? Ha!
