Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

As city folk from the states we don't get much opportunity to see something like this. We enjoyed it. We learned a bunch about shearing and raising sheep in New Zealand. It was both informative and entertaining. It's also pretty cheap. I'd recommend it if you're in Kaikoura.

We really enjoyed the sheep sheering show. We loved meeting Pete's dogs and his sheep. We certainly were up close and personal! He even had a few local reasonably priced souvenirs that we purchased.

For only 12 dollars you get a personal encounter with the sheep. Pete is awesome, learning you about sheep farming and shearing. You get to feed the sheep, photograph and hang out with the two lovely sheep dogs.

We liked the show, especially feeding the baby sheep. Very informative and gets you close to how local farms are. The owners are very friendly.

Cool show - worth the visit! Just pop in on your way to the seal colony and find out the daily show times. It's a really personal thing and you'll make friends with Jed the dog immediately. Very relaxed and enjoyable and not what every tourist in Kaikoura does. Takes about half an hour. We had a good time.
