About the event
I absolutely love showing sheep and it has been a passion of mine since I was a little kid! If you have been interested in potentially showing sheep, be sure to come to this class!
This will be a hands-on class where we will delve into all aspects of what it takes to show wool sheep. This is not a class about slicked club lambs, this is all about wool! You must be 13 or older to attend this class. You will come away with:
- Working knowledge of the presentation of different breeds of wooled sheep
- What basic show jargon means
- What to look for in the sheep you show
- What tools you will want/need depending on what breed(s) you plan to show
- How to feed sheep for show and what nutritional choices are available
- How to hand trim and/or utilize electric clippers to trim sheep
- When and how to halter train your sheep
Bring your questions and a learning spirit! I want you to come away with questions answered and the confidence to pursue your passions. Showing is such fabulous promotion for beautiful sheep!
