Wow! We had a great weekend learning to shear our sheep the old fashioned way!

Our good friend Amy Gillingham organized the event with the inimitable Kevin Ford!! He is, in a word, The Master (i guess that's two words) Our small group of students from all around New York came together to learn the finer points of preparing shears, assessing the animal, and of course, SHEARING!

Check out Kevin's book - http://www.amazon.com/Shearing-Day-Handling-Science-Blades/dp/0966915348/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237749884&sr=1-1
