Shearing Sheep

March 29, 2016

We sheared the sheep last week and I captured live video for Living the Country Life on Facebook. Check it out below.

The video has more than 23,000 views and hundreds of comments. A few people thought the sheep were being harmed, but most had positive comments about the skill of the shearer, who is a former world champion.

The ewes are due to lamb soon, and were glad to be rid of their winter coat.

Stay tuned for live video of our new lambs in April!

Warm temps, sunshine, and shorn fleece make happy sheep.

Three bags full of wool. The price we receive covers the cost of shearing.

This is fascinating, especially watching how the shearer get the organic wool. These packed wool am assume goes to a batting farm and gets cleansed. We use some of these types of wool batting in our cotton mattress with latex and is gods gift to sleeping on natural surfaces. I hope this industry sustains unlike other traditions of the past.
