  1. Thank you for that information about shearing – very interesting. I had never seen these sheep before coming across them on Facebook and find them totally fascinating!! Can’t wait for the lambing season to start – hope there are lots of photos – and I would love to know how many lambs the one due mid
    January has it looks like she is going to have a litter!!!

  2. That’s really informative. I was looking for information on raw wool and came across your site. I never would of thought that shearing was done this time of year to encourage the ewe’s to head indoors with the lambs. Sure makes sense though.
