Shearing Demonstration

Wool, glorious wool!

As the weather gets warmer, it’s a bit too hot for our sheep to be wearing their winter coats. Some of the primitive breeds naturally shed their wool before the summer comes, but others need a little bit of help. We will shear the sheep of their fleeces, explaining the process and how the wool and lanolin can be used afterwards. Shearing takes place twice daily until 18th June.
