Shearing in Wiltshire
« on: April 16, 2013, 06:48:14 pm »
Is there a shearer out there who will do a small flock in Wiltshire midway between Swindon and Salisbury? I have approx 17 in need of a haircut sometime in May. Hoping to dag them all this weekend which will buy me time but expecting flies to be a nuisance with the weather hotting up.

Just noticed the post sorry, are you still looking for a shearer ? There is a guy called nick who covers our area and does any number. I can get his phone number if you still need one.

Send a PM to the SInging Shearer on here - he covers most of england, scotland and wales in patches. Coming to me in Worcs in May and I can highly recommend him  :)  http://www.singingshearer.co.uk/

Singing shearer has been in touch and I think is working on his schedule.  I think I tried Nick last year if he is based near Andover and he let me down. Never turned up, didn't answer phone, didn't call back. I'm too busy to be messed about.


I'll wait for Phil or start doing myself. Thanks all

I heard from SS today via email. I think he's pretty much organised so will be in touch soon I'd reckon, he's very reliable  :)
