Most of my family is outside the major flooding areas. From what I’ve heard worst flooding is in central VT - Montpelier, Quechee, Barre, etc… a section of I-89 is completely closed. I have a friend stuck at a rest stop in Berlin. I’m sure he’s having the time of his life though.
They’re saying this is the highest the Winooski River has been since 1920-something. The damage is worse than hurricane Irene and that was catastrophic.
Sheared a few more lambs this afternoon. I think I’m just over half way through. They’ve been remarkably well behaved so far. Usually lambs are a pain to shear due to dramatics. The most dramatic so far has been Lizzie. 🤣
Lisle is one of my Border Leicester ewes that I’m listing for sale. I did a rough fit job on her before shearing her completely. I’m a bit rusty, but I think her trim looks pretty good for a 10 minute job.
She’s a nice little ewe. I’ve got 2 more big girls like her. The one I’m keeping is probably the nicest of the 3.
Remember the lamb that got stuck in the sinkhole a couple months ago? I sheared her today and her fleece was still full of mud. She looks really nice under her fleece.
