Sheep Shearing Postponed!

Sheep Shearing Postponed...

7:15  CLOUDY!  But it was cloudy yesterday...not suppose to rain today.
7:20  Honey it looks like it is going to rain..not suppose to rain today.
7:25  5 minute down pour.

Not enough to actually benefit the garden, or fruit trees but enough to cancel shearing today! It has been a dust bowl around here for 2 weeks. We would have bought the sheep in the gray barn if we had any idea it was going to rain. We spent yesterday evening setting up a pen outside so we could do the shearing in the red barn (a much nicer barn). Well even the best laid plans can be brought to a halt by Mother Nature!

Rescheduled for Monday morning.

Side Note: You do not shear WET sheep!
Bright Side: The alfalfa seed that was drilled in last night got a little damp!

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young
