So, about that shearing date, and other goat-ness

In case you were wondering about shearing, and why I haven't said anything about a date... Originally, I was scheduled to shear tomorrow (Saturday), but was *never told* about it until I got a "can we reschedule" e-mail. Unfortunately, the reschedule request was for *today*. So I politely pointed out that I didn't have any plans to shear during a snowstorm in either case.

At this time, I do not have either a shearer or a date lined up. My apologies to any and all who were hoping to join in the work and fun of shearing this winter. It may not be for a while, or I may end up doing it by myself peacemeal as I go along.

In the meantime, Jared and Loki are still in rut. Jessie just stopped singing (again), so maybe they will calm down a bit. At this point, the boys have broken a handful of double-ended snap clips, a couple of fence panels, and one of the aluminum bars off the center of the gate dividing them. ::sigh::

Eta: Who am I kidding? I just looked outside and saw all four boys on the same side of the fence. ::sigh:: I'll go fix it when I put out their hay in a bit. Hopefully no one gets hurt in the meantime.
