Oatland Sheep Sheering 2017

Fun fun last weekend at Oatland Island Wildlife Center outside Savannah...for the annual sheep shearing and spring festival.  This year the Wildlife Center acquired two mohair goats so there were four animals to shear! Members of the guild "trained" to wield the shears.  Here are some photos:

"Storm" in front, and "Cloud"

A bad photo of a clever idea...this downed tree has been warped for kids to weave on

Shearings are sent to the mill and come back as roving, we then spin and weave and raffle or sell the results to benefit Oatland Island Wildlife Center
