Lol, I have heard that shop vacs on the blow setting and leaf blowers work well to dry them...Oh no...One of a woolly shepherd's biggest problems has arrived!
Keeping sheep DRY before shearing!
Rain! I hate rain. I used to love it, then I got a house with land and animals and flooding and wet sheep and working in rain and...ugh.
Anyway...Shearing is sometime between the 7th & 9th. So, here's the forecast leading up to it.
That used carport I got for a steal is going up today. Going to put it against the barn opening & add walls to keep it dry inside. They'll have to go in Sunday night & stay until Tuesday morning. Ugh.
Then, it looks like they may have to stay in from Thursday until shearing...wtf. I need a bigger barn. Without a raised alley separating it...
They're going to be some pissed off sheep! Ugh
Hopefully, most of it will change & be dry instead.
