I'm pretty new to all of this. The short story is that we bought a flock of sheep & goats & a llama (package deal). The weather today was wonderfully warm (at 62F) the sheep, however (2 ewes, 1 ram) were panting pretty hard during the warmest part of the day. I have no idea when to shear them, or how to. Is it possible to advertise "Free Wool: You Shear" and have someone competent show up for it? I really have no use for the wool this year (too much to do), so would that be good enough payment for shearing, or is there usually a charge for it? If there is a charge, how much? Sorry for so many questions, I'm really hoping someone can enlighten me.
