4. Thanks for posting!

Heard about this a few days ago, but hadn't seen the shearing video. I don't know how he survived with the weight and heat retention that the fleece must have trapped.

8. Good point. summer is just ending there,

So glad he made it.

9. Interesting.

What a great thing the internet does....connects these shelters with folks who care and support. It's a great way to get financial support by sharing these moments from 1/2 the world away.

10. He must feel SO much better.

And I love his name. Not likely, but if I ever have a sheep, I will name him Barack. 🐑

12. Aww, he looks happy.

Poor guy before being shorn. I did see some areas where the skin split when they shaved him. When skin splits and bleeds you know how tight the mats were. His skin can breath now and get healthier.

13. After lossing 77 pounds of wool, he HAS to feel absolutely glorious!

So happy for him!

I had no idea fleece keeps growing and growing.
Why don't the Bighorns get overgrown like that?

18. That is exactly what I've been wondering.

Do all sheep need to be sheared regularly? I'm thinking no. Otherwise we'd hear stores like this more often.

I'm so happy these wonderful people were able to help the poor guy.
