The shearing of the sheep is a traditional farm practice to gather wool for a variety of textiles. Each sheep produces from six to 10 pounds of wool each year. Called "Wild'n'Woolly" for a few years, the sheep shearing event originated in the early '90s, as the crowds coming each spring to watch the sheep being shorn of their winter coats kept growing.
