Getting back into shearing the goats

Finally got back into the shearing mood.  I sheared Celieto this afternoon.  She is 2 1/2 year old doe.

I was a bit annoyed with her. She let me lead her up to the shearing stand just fine, and was good for about 5 minutes of shearing. Then she decided she was done, and wiggled and squirmed and even managed to jump off the stand twice.

What should have been a 20 minute simple chore turned into a 50 minute pain in the butt.

Willow and Carly did NOT help one bit.  They kept jumping up on the stand with Celieto. I believe they thought they were helping me.

Bah.
