Nothin’ like a hot cup of tea to get you ready for a long day of wool harvesting. Ah, a hairy day indeed. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy grooming my rabbits. They are very soft and very pleasant which makes for a nice five minutes or so of one-on-one time. But when it is time to harvest wool from– not just one, but four— rabbits in one day…. well, that makes for a long afternoon in the Rabbitry. I’m looking at about four hours of plucking.
Toblerone, Bunaby Jones, and the two REW bucks in the hutch all need their wool harvested. Like, yesterday. Okay, okay, I exaggerate, but it does need to be done today. And this mango Ceylon brew will hopefully get me through it.
Anyone else out there harvesting wool from rabbits, alpaca, sheep, or goats this week?
