Shearing the boys

This year we have four males on our farm to use as herdsires:

They were the first to be shorn this past Saturday morning. (It takes me a bit to crop all my pictures and get them up on the blog. We only have dial-up internet at home so loading pictures can be a day long undertaking. But, I know this blog without pictures just isn't the same).

The before pictures are previous pictures I had on hand of each of the boys. At their age, they don't change that much.

Our oldest breeding age male is ~ ARF Our Peruvian Tucker:

I think his face especially looks like a Dr. Seuss character:

Here Tucker is the center of the boys paddock:

The next oldest is SA Peruvian Greyt Exxpectations:

ATA Peruvian Boppana:

Bo's top knot had so many burrs and was starting to matt so we had to really trim it back. I know it will fill in again, and next time we won't let it get so bad so we won't have to trim it so much.

ATA Peruvian Harley:

While only Tucker has a cria on the ground (our own OHVNA Challenger), Greyt's first cria is due any day now (by our own Sancha). We hope both Bo and Harley are ready to breed this year. We have quite a few girls we will need to breed.
