Looks like the redhead was already shorn.


You really need to explain more. :) A local "youth farming" group? Daughter's friends?

BTW, the use of that BOSCH tool case as a control box is clever. I may run to the local flea market to see what I can score to use for control cases.

Judging by the look on the face of the first one in line with the blue striped top, she has already caught on to you.

I think you might call that look well..... somewhat sheepish.

They look like they're about to get fleeced.

But you're not pulling the wool over their eyes.

Just feed them well, talk nice to them, pet them all equally, and they'll just follow you around, they'll make dandy house pets too.:D :rolleyes:

Re: wanted it back??

Yeah, i wondered about that too,, the poor thing was probably covered in patches, from air leaks!!!

But maybe john was ,,, you know ,, the first,, so he has some sentimental attatchment to it.

(Wonder if he had a name for it,, what would it be??) any guesses????:D

That is where the Border Collies come into play.


As to no machining content......there are lots of parts on that machine that were machined and made with the help of the members on this forum.

Oh, there is a machine is the picture somewhere in the backbround. I hardly noticed. Actually I did follow your thread with some interest as, sometime in the past, we did raise sheep.
