I know it sounds like an infomercial that you would see on TV late at night when you can’t sleep, but it’s not. Unlike those television gimmicks, this method actually has guaranteed results, and doesn’t require any bulky machines that have to get shipped to your house. The unfortunate part about this sure-fire weight loss plan is…
It’s only for sheep.
You may have guessed what I’m talking about by looking at our freshly sheared wooly friends in the picture below. Yes, that’s right, it was time for our annual sheep shearing this past Sunday. And you might be surprised how heavy all that wool actually is!
This year we had a new person shearing our sheep, and she did it the old-fashioned way: with actual shears instead of electric clippers. This means she manually cut the wool off the sheep instead of the faster way of shaving them (much like you would your own hair). Below, you can see some pictures from Sunday with the woman using real shears. However, you can click here to read a post about the sheep being sheared in 2008, and watch a video of the shearer using electric clippers, instead. As you will read in the 2008 post, our five sheep yielded around 40 pounds of wool! How would you like to lose 8 pounds every time you got your hair cut?!
