High Blean Bainbridge: Shearing time is here.

Our neighbouring farmer at High Blean House started his shearing today, ably assisted by old hand Bill Arkrigg,

While Kevin sheared and trimmed hooves, Bill packed up the shorn fleece for transportation.

Shame of it being the wool is all but worthless, and certainly does not cover all that back breaking work.
