|Bumblebee's beautiful lamb locks fall off in my fingers|
But I realized yesterday that she is losing her fleece. This must be what people mean when they say that stress or illness causes breaks in the fiber. Her curls come out with the slightest pressure.
So, do I shear her? Roo her? (Odd sounding for a BFL, but possible in her state I think.)
I'm afraid to leave it on her. It will certainly mat when the new fiber starts to grow in.
On the other hand, to take it off will leave her bare. I figure she's got about two months before we get any truly cold weather, but even next month, the nights should be in the forties. I guess she could wear one of the goat coats if it comes to that.
What do I do?
