Lou is the owner of Cragend Farm with her husband Shaun, and deals with everything from Holiday Accommodation inquiries to egg collection from the chickens; she is the social media and web design finger-tapper.
Every summer we have to shear the sheep and this year Shaun was there with his shears again to clip the sheep.
This year we have some video of the action, and although not winning any prizes for speed or fleece, Shaun is very careful and gentle with the sheep in order not to stress them.
There is also a cameo appearance by Dax our new sheep dog.
