The Fiber Weavers
Our fences are easy to spot in May when the Katahdin sheep are shedding.
Because we have no trees in the pastures, the sheep choose the fences for a good rub.
The wire bracing is ideal for loosening the hair on their backs. As for the hair on their sides, there is nothing like a long run of woven wire that they can lean against as they walk. They've created white fiber-wrapped fence that stands out in the fields of green.
But I can't help but wonder if we could up the ante on the sheep artistry. What would happen if we painted the sheep before shedding season?
