Sheep Shearing, Border Collie Herding and Wool Tent
Friday – Sunday "Our sheep shearer this year is Bill Haudenschield from Marysville, Ohio. The Haudenschield family has been shearing sheep since 1953 with the third generation now shearing along with Bill. The Haudenschields shear all over this part of the country and even work with some of the big shearing crews out west. Bill doesn’t mind the hard work and enjoys working with good shepherds.
Bill will be shearing continuously from approximately 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, approximately every other hour until dark!
One of Bill’s favorite tricks is shearing a sheep blindfolded. Ask him about it!"
Miller Border Collie Sheep Herding
Saturday – Sunday following the shearing demonstration.
"The Wool Tent will have raw, washed and ready to spin fleeces from all breeds of fiber animals, including sheep, alpacas, goats, llamas, rabbits.
They also have natural colored and dyed roving and yarns, spinning, weaving, rug hooking, knitting and crocheting tools, woven rugs, knitted and crocheted hats and headbands, wet felted and needle felted finished goods, photography, note cards, Christmas items, sheep and crafting novelties and more.
There will be educational demonstrations going throughout the weekend. Stop in and learn to spin, knit, crochet, weave, needle felt and process wool. Be inspired!"
