Overview

Enjoy the atmosphere of an original shearing shed. The show consists of hand feeding our drysdale Ram ??? Ram-Man??? (who is very photogenic) watching a sheep being shorn, the wool being sorted and pressed. This is followed by a general discussion giving information about sheep shearing, sheep breeds and wool types. Hold a shearing hand piece, old blades shears and Ram horns. During spring you can touch, hold and feed a lamb. Time 30 minutes.

The show takes place on a working farm. A great show for families - very interactive as we got to hold a lamb born just the night before, fed the resident ram, and saw a sheep shearing demonstration. The commentary was interesting, entertaining and gives...More
