The Holliston Homestead- It was Shear Day back on March 24th. No sheep were harmed in this process – this guy is a PROFESSIONAL! Not even one knick! The reason the sheep are hand sheared is because their wool will be used for knitting. Next up – Carding the Wool and grading the coat! The sheep look so funny now and are quite naked. They have been so much more talkative since they got sheared. Didn’t hear a peep out of them all winter but now its BAH BAH BAH!
