Shearing Day- April 1, 2017
This year we will have seventeen sheep to shear. This will give us a full day of shearing, fleece skirting and preparing the ewes for lambing.
Come join us on April 1, watch the sheep being sheared, learn how to skirt a fleece and maybe find a favorite to take home.
Picnic area available, bring a lunch. Be sure to dress for mud and cold. Out of respect for Marcus, our Amish shearer, we ask that no photos be taken of him shearing.
Tom Sawyer whitewashed a fence, we will build two fences from scratch. One Hi-Tensile woven wire and one Hi-Tensile smooth wire. Bring your work gloves and learn the tricks of the trade and shortcuts we have picked up in thirty plus years of fencing.
Coming April/May 2017
Sheep School 101- April 28, 2017
Vets routinely describe sheep as animals born looking for a place to die. But sheep raising does not have to be quite this dire and grim.
Spend a day with us and our sheep learning how we keep a happy and healthy flock. Prepare for lambing, vaccinations, deworming, feeding, lamb and ewe care.
