We are expecting rain on Friday and the sheep have to be dry for shearing on Saturday. Normally they are moved into the barn the night before shearing so that they don't have any dew or wet spots on them. We also take away their hay & water so that they are sheared on an empty stomach. They're not happy in the morning, but it's easier on them to have an empty stomach while they're being rolled around during shearing. I'm predicting that WRF #39 below will have a nice handspinning fleece!
