Hoof trim

Today all the sheep had their hooves trimmed. The first three sheep (now two) had theirs trimmed back in June, but the second three (by the looks of it) have never had theirs trimmed. It all turned into something of a marathon. The sheep-sofa came in handy, but it was still back-ache inducing work. What I need is a rising table! I found a woodworking surform very useful for finishing off after the initial trim with the hoof trimmers. It's amazing how quickly their hooves have grown.
Despite vigourous handwashing, I have smelt rather 'sheepy' today! Thankfully, a shower and change of clothes seems to have sorted the problem.
