Theresa has been shearing her angora bunnies lately... these are from this morning when she sheared Bingo:
She uses a hair cutting scissors and lots of patience and TLC. Her bunnies are gentle, trusting little fellows who sit there and clean themselves while they wait for her to finish. The fiber is divided into two bags; one with the long clean staple length locks for carding and spinning and the other with snippets, breast, belly and butt hair for stuffing.
Donna loves to watch. She says, "Momma's gonna make da bunny hair on her spinnin' wheel, for, to make, a pwesent for me, on my birfday!"
This video a work of the boy's from Theresa's 2008 Angora Bunny Shearing. Some of you long time blog readers may remember it. It was Donna's absolute favorite movie ever for the longest time!
