Shearing day 2009: Bob Schroth of Strasburg, Colorado shears Arturus ...
The following table is a list of Bond fleeces currently available.
The list is arranged with the lightest coloured fleeces at the top of the list, and the very darkest fleeces are at the bottom.
Please check back from time to time as more fleeces are skirted.
I will split the larger fleeces in half from front to back, meaning that you would get 1/2 the shoulder, back, and flank wool from that fleece.
An unexpected thing has happened here on the farm. For many years we have used the same type of ear tags for the sheep.
Each sheep has an individual, unique name and ear tag number. Apparently over time, with very cold winters and very hot summers … the ear tags have shattered. Sometimes, many at a time.
When shearing comes, we replace ear tags that have broken. Sadly, I can not identify some of the sheep. Over time, their colour goes lighter, and the grade may also change. When I look at them, there is a mob of faces, with varying shades of brown, silver, and white wools. When there as many as 6 little sheep with no ear tags, all shades of brown wool, I can’t be sure who is who.
The result is your favorite sheep is there, but I can no longer tell which one it may be.
So, on the chart you will see ear tag numbers. For the most part, these are the older animals that have lost their ear tags.
I am very sorry about this. For myself most of all. I knew them by their names and faces, but time and broken tags have made this impossible.
