Sheep Shearing at the Iowa Sheep & Wool Festival

I attended the Iowa Sheep & Wool Festival a few weeks ago. It was held in Adel Iowa and sponsored by the Iowa Sheep Industry Association. There were many fabulous vendors as well as some great demonstrations. I thought that I'd share a few photos of the sheep shearing demonstration by Rocky Anderson. I was really surprised by the docile nature of the sheep as they were being sheared. Although the shearer had many years of experience, the sheep also seemed to be well versed in what they had to do. They were all very still and just assumed the positions for shearing. It was quite a site to see and very interesting.
