Shearly there's been a mistake?

One of our neighbours has a rag tag bunch of sheep which just seem to wander around the village.

Apart from the ones in the picture that is which he tethers to a stake outside the front of his house for some reason.

In this hot weather I started feeling for them and asked if he had some shears so we could get their fleeces off.

Turns out he does and he’s got 79 sheep, didn't look to be that many when I've seen them wandering about, may be he’s been hiding a few.

What have I got myself into, it must be coming up to ten years since I've sheared a sheep and I haven’t seen these shears yet.
