Shearing day is right around the corner. Temperatures are to dip pretty low Wednesday night and then begin to warm up again. It is almost May, after all.
It looks like this year's growth has been almost two inches! These two were built for arctic conditions. I never worry about them in the winter.
Lately, I've been working on trimming their hooves whenever I can catch them lying down. As you can see, Faith has both her feet tucked beneath her. That's because I just trimmed both of her front hooves and she is telling me that "enough is enough!" The sheep shearer will finish trimming their hooves when he shears them.
For some reason, this winter they grew a lot of hoof.
I've been working on trimming pig toes as well, lately.
