Specsavers or not?!

With the sun shining and the sheep far too hot and dry I thought I would put my new clippers to the test and shear them.

The first victim, I mean volunteer, was Mia.  For the first time ever she didn't seem to want to come out of her field; I can't think why!  Here she is before I got my hands on her, as you can see she is doing a good job of self shearing.
I've got to be honest I was very worried that I'd cut her but once I got going it wasn't too bad.  She does have one little cut as has my finger but here's the after shot. 
I don't think I did too bad a job do you, it's not as bad as the specsaver advert anyway!

Whilst I was out with the camera I caught half sisters Ellie May and Angelica exchanging kisses.  Both girls are from Legend of Spartacus and have extremely bright fleeces which we are very pleased with.

Mia looks great, Debbie. Is there anything that you can't do?
