I can't think of a practical reason to leave wool on the legs soooo I'm thinking it's a show sheep requirement (which may be practical for that!) Shearing the legs would give a sheep a taller look and potentially an unfair advatage. It might just be a requirement so the breed is adequately displayed! I don't show sheep but know enough to suggest the actual reason but I'd bet lunch it's show related.
