Yikes, the bunnies want Spring back

Wow, I feel like I was just turning on heat lamps last week. Oh wait, I was!!! This is the craziest wether. So it went from freezing last weekend to 90+ just 4 days later. I was hoping to get another inch of growth on a Peta and Gale. But it was just too hot for them. They have really thick coats. In the last 24 hours I have clipped 5 bunnies, blow dried (to keep from felting) 8 more, clipped belly hair of 10. Hum I wonder why my back hurts.

So last year I lost the coats of all my angoras due to the insane heat. This year, I at least was able to save about 4 OZ, it would have been more if the temperature wasn't so crazy. The when it gets hot they fuzz on their legs a lot more, I lost a lot of fiber due to frizz.

It's was nice to see how much better they felt after having their bellies shaved, and around their necks. A few of them had not seen clippers before and they where not too sure about it. But in the end it was all good.

I am in the process of prepping the fiber and getting it up in the store. Hard to think about staying warm and spinning yarn for scarves when it is 90+ degrees though.
