Sheep Sheering
SAturday 10-1
Roger Williams Park Zoo
Listen to Pete Sepe, of Sepe Farm, LLC, as he explains the process of shaving the wool off a sheep, and the skills required to shear a sheep efficiently and quickly without causing injury to the sheep or the shearer. Customarily sheep are sheared yearly so they do not become stressed or uncomfortable especially in the hot and humid weather. If not sheared, a sheep’s wool will become matted, stained, and difficult to remove.
