Shearing
« on: April 08, 2011, 04:23:38 pm »
The weather is warming up and it's nearly that time of year again so I thought I would take this chance ( on a day off ) to say that if anyone is wanting me for the 2011 season, I am available and I am working my routes out now so please get in touch to let me know when you would like.

Philip, The Singing Shearer

Hi,

To do it as a one off would be quite expensive. 30 minimum charge plus cost of travel from South Yorkshire but if I can find a few more jobs in your area then it would bring the price down to something more realistic.

Could you tell me the nearest town to you?

Thanks,
Philip :sheep:

Of course, I will contact the other customers in your area and get back to you with an idea of a day.

Adam Pitts is your man for Somerset.  07855 841320 - He does a great job, really professional but takes the extra time.  Give him a call and tell him he owes me!!!!

The bugger won't do my sheep now that I have hundreds to do!

Val - Adam did yours last year!

Singing shearer - how is my beautiful kelpie - I was only thinking about her today!

Hi Freddie,

He won't shear for you as you have too many???  :o
If you are stuck then I can always try to fit you in ;) how many have you got?
By the way Blue is doing very well although she hasn't seen a sheep in a while ( but she is keen on the ducks)

Woolyshepherd,

Don't worry about it ;D.

I am coming down to Gloucestershire a few times in the season so Somerset is no problem for me if anyone does need me.

Hi, do you do shearing lessons?? I did my own last year very unconventionally.  Could do with a bit of help and a couple are a nightmare (Southdown x).

Anyway if around Pewsey, WIltshire (SN9) later this month I would like to do mine.  That's if they haven't melted before then.  They are panting quite bad at moment but it's so cold at night daren't risk doing too soon.

Hi ScotsGirl,

I can teach people but it would cost a lot to come down to you as it is not an area that I have many jobs in, have you seen my video on You Tube? It might help you out a bit.

I am shearing some Hampshire Down on Wednesday so I could try to video one whilst talking you through it if that would help.

Thanks,
Philip :sheep:

Back to the original post, anyone needing me to shear your sheep please get in touch I will shear any size flock large or small and depending on the setup I can shear up to 200 sheep a day.

Also as the song goes "I've never slummed a pen my lads whatever it might contain"

Thanks,
Philip :sheep:

Philip

I have about 300 to do, although they are in different groups so could do something like ewes with doubles on day, singles the next and ewe lambs thrown in on the end! 

If anyone wants works experience around shearing time I would never refuse some help!
