The Herdwick sheep we introduced earlier this turned out to be great characters and have done a good job of grazing the field. However, our lack of experience shows now we have come to shear them. Initially an attempt was made with hand clippers but this wasn’t very successful so we bought some electric clippers and a second go. They are all now sheared but are sporting the latest fashion in 100% sheep’s wool neck buffs! Too afraid to use the clippers close to their necks they have retained a wool collar. We have given the Specsavers ad a run for their money!
