Naked Sheep

Spring Shearing at Joybilee Farm

Ian travelled from Agassiz to Greenwood on Tuesday to shear our 55 animals -- wool sheep with 7inch fleece and Angora goats with 5 inch Mohair. It was just in time, too. We had 3 babies born during the shearing in the warm winter sun.

Ian is a professional shearer with training from Canadian Cooperative Wool growers and Olds College. The sheep trust him and that makes the shearing go well for Ian and the sheep.

Ian is our son.
