Daggers, drawn

Thanks to a wonderfully clear how-to guide from Tim Tyne, the world's most educational shepherd, I have been dagging.

Yes, it's a new verb for me, too. It means using shears to cut the mucky wool from around the rear end of the sheep to prepare them for mating. What my scandalous sister would call "vagazzling..."

Note the open magazine in the photo, top right: my copy of Country Smallholding, open at Tim's photo instructions.
