One of the highlights of the Marshfield Fiber Fair was the demonstration of sheep shearing. Sheep wranglers use electric clippers and a lot of muscle to get these girls ready for summer.

Now then, for a willing participant...

A firm grip and quick flip puts the ewe in position.

Even sheep run out of patience, so work fast!

And it's back to the pen - a newer, cooler ewe.

The complete fleece, ready to be skirted and scoured, then prepped for spinning!
