On May 6th Middleton Place has their annual sheep shearing! We always enjoy it
The entire fleece. They try to get it off in one piece.
The fire had gone out and they were not sure how to start up another fire.
Lon, the boy scout, to the rescue! He gathered kindling, made the log cabin with the bigger pieces of wood.
The fire was restarted, the temperature in the kettle got up to the optimal temperature to dye wool.
A good deed done for the day
We love the goats. The brown one, we have known him since he was born, and the black one was new to us this trip.
I did not get pictures of the cashmere goats I like so much. They were a bit miffed that the sheep were getting almost all the attention. One of the girls stayed in her shed, the friendlier one did come out when I talked to her. Petting the cashmere goats is a wonderful thing, our hands are so soft!
It was a fun afternoon at Middleton Place.
If you are wondering if I got out of the parking spot without damaging the car, I did. No scrapes or bruises on the car. Whew!
