    OMG it's going to be a long day. We sheared 25 and broke it down into 2 days. We even had a professional shearer. My fleece had a lot of dust so it wore out a lot of blades and was harder for our shearer. He told me sheep are much easier since they have lanolin in their fleece. They also don't pitch as big a fit as the goats do. Good luck with shearing. If you can post pictures that would be awesome! I'd love to see them and I'm sure others would as well.
