I sheared Sierra on Friday. I can't believe how well she behaved. She was reluctant to walk to the shearing stand, but I stopped and scratched her nose after every few steps, so she didn't fight me. She was a little fidgety during shearing but, again, not bad. She kept wagging her tail while I was trying to shear it -- not good. It's very difficult to safely trim a moving target! But everything went fine, and now she's a shiny white sheep, cool as a cucumber. I think she's rather pleased.
