Rooing

video
Here is a video of me rooing Gilroy Corrine 's ram that I leased. He was really easy to roo and reminded me of a Soay as far a rooablity and fleece type. Some sheep will roo part of their fleece but not all. (All of my rams rood parts of their fleeces.) I rood one ewe and she didn't roo as easily, but neither Gilroy or that ewe's fleeces need any cutting. 

This fleece has the rise and is ready to shear. This particular sheep does not roo.

I have around 30 Shetlands to shear or roo still. Some have not gotten the rise enough to shear yet.
