Kevin Ford from Charlemont, MA has been shearing our sheep for over ten years. He is one of the only "blade shearers" in the USA. Maybe you have seen him at Maryland Sheep and Wool or one of the other Wool Festivals. Here are some scenes from yesterday. He sheared 61 sheep and today, he is doing about the same amount. We never know how many sheep we have until we count them on shearing day and pay the bill. We don't shear the lambs. Kevin wrote a book on shearing called Shearing Day and you can order it here.
