    Lots of work, I hope you get a decent price for them to make it worthwhile.

    Looks like I'll get what I paid the shearer plus her tip. So, to me at least, its worth it.

    But I haven't had to buy any boxes yet. If I do, that'll suck....

    Next year, all except lambs, will be coated fleeces! I should get shearing, tip plus some extra as profit.


    Juliana fleece sold!
