James Baaahhnd (0007) 3/4 Icelandic, 1/4 Shetland 2014, bottle baby, Originated at K. C. Icelandics, Milton, TN, came to us in September 2014.
James’s 2015 spring fleece was a total loss, as I had no idea what I was doing when I sheared him, so I first cut only about half as close to the skin as I should have. The rest was full of burrs. Hopefully I will do better with his fall clip!
I think that Q’s spring 2015 fleece will give me some good wool to work with, as I did a much better job on him! It helps that his undercoat had already separated ( a traditional shetland trait, called Rooing) so that I could see what I was doing and just had to cut the outer coat. Plus, he stood still for me, where James was a jumpy little bugger!
