Learning the skills needed for sheep shearing!

 One of the most interesting things for me on the Provincial Heritage Fair camp was watching the man shear a sheep. The man showed us the technique on how to move the electric clippers. While he was explaining the other sheep's were baaing, it was high pitched baa the then the father sheep would have a low tone baa. While this was going on the man started to shear the sheep and it stayed very still and in a matter of five minutes all of the wool was cut off into one large piece. I found this very interesting and learned how much care is put into his process.
