Becoming something else.

Iain T and Iain M kindly came along this afternoon to shear our hoggs.  There had been a shower or two earlier in the day so Farmer was glad he had gathered them from the fields and put them into the shed to keep dry.

The head of the trailer 'race' always has an animal in it, to encourage the others to follow.  They are changed over during the course of the day so they don't have to stand there all day.

Waiting, waiting.  (still hoggs).

Tea time.

And out.  Gimmers now.

Never quite sure who anyone is once they have been sheared, so quite a lot of calling and ranging around trying to work out who is who.

The gimmers will be let away to the hill tomorrow once they have had a fluke treatment.
