More Shearing Day Scenes

I had way too many photos for one post. Here’s another round of pics showing moments throughout the day. We stopped mid morning to celebrate our shearer Andy Rice’s birthday with a delicious cake baked by Sheep Share member Pat Philbin. ( I think we were shy a few candles on the cake!). Many thanks again to all. Photos here provided courtesy of Lisa McGuire.

Here are some scenes from the day: Thank you to Lisa McGuire for taking these photos. For more pics of Shearing Day action, visit our Facebook group: Foxfire Fiber Friends.
