Fleece skirting

The weather has been very mixed again today, just as the herd started to dry off it rained again. I'm sure we are going to go straight into winter this year!

I have been busy skirting fleeces ready for a show at the weekend, it's not a job I really enjoy doing but one that needs doing. At least they weren't as bad as the youngsters I had to skirt for the Scottish National composite show at Kelso.

Duchess bless her is having udder issues again this year, the flies just love her. Thankfully she is very co-operative and happily lets me cream her up, she's not so keen on the fly repellent though. Just as I think we are getting somewhere the pesky things get her again.
