Annual Sheep Shearing

Category: Included with Admission

Date: May 4, 2019
Time: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Middleton Place Gulf Coast sheep receive an annual shearing during a demonstration using traditional steel blade shears in the Plantation Stableyards.  Costumed interpreters will remove the fleece from the animal using hand shears, skirt the shorn fleece to remove any matted or dirty wool, roll the fleece so it can be sent off for processing, and educate visitors about the Gulf Coast breed, shearing and wool processing.

The Sheep Shearing program is included with general admission to Middleton Place/Free for Foundation Members.
