    Default How to Sheer the Sheep

    Amy Wolf, with electric shears and the help of daughter Morgan, holding the sheep’s head at left, separates the wool in one piece from a sheep




    “The first rule of shearing is the shearer has to win.”



    Wolf proceeded to show a steady procession of sheep she meant business.

    First, she guided her prey — 200 pounds of fluffy ovine — to center stage, holding the animal under its chin.

    Next the fake-out.

    “Sheep will want to do the opposite of what you want ’em to do,” So if you want to pull a sheep onto its side, give it a quick shove forward.

    Then she rocked the animal gently and, lickety-split, had its head locked between her knees. Some ewes looked startled, others almost somnambulant.

    While some cooperated, others wanted nothing to do with this nonsense. In the latter category was the unhappy “herd leader.” Twinkles. The thinker in the group.

    It would be a battle of wits, if Twinkles had her druthers, she’d pop up and bolt.

    “It’s finesse,” Wolf explained, “not brute strength.”

    “You have to have the right rhythm, the right stroke,” Wolf explained. “It’s physics. Like a wrestler.”

    In less than four minutes, the job was done. A pile of fluff lay on the stage, and Twinkles was led back to the pen.

    Thanks Matt, but I did this on purpose, it does fit with the whole double-entendre of this post.

    and also because the root is the same, except for the adjective form which is an entirely different word


    (how do you herd sheep, you cause them to sheer around, until they are ready, then you shear them.


    I assume you understand
