Just like people, when an animal undergoes a difficult health situation, you can see it in their hair. Just the other day I noticed that he had begun to roo. That means that his lovely fleece was falling out! I spent a couple of sessions over the next few days and literally pulled his fleece out.
He went from this:
Luckily, his guard hairs are still in place, and a new fleece will be growing out shortly. If it gets too cold, I will make him a coat. His fleece pretty much fills a walmart bag, I haven't played with it yet, but you can be sure I will!
Until next time, Happy Spinning, Knitting and Weaving, Tina
