Sheep shearing at Peter Wentz Farmstead in Lansdale, Pennsylvania


I wonder how they see through this dense coat!
I couldn't get a good angle to shoot a photo of the shearing process...
... but here the shearer shows the mass of wool from one yearling sheep.
This fellow was on hand to help with the process as needed.
The sheep looks a lot cooler with that winter coat removed!
A pair of oxen also live on the farm.
Here an ox cozies up to a cow.
And of course we can't have a farm without a rooster and his hens!
