Sheep Shearing

June 4 – 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

In the 1880s, El Paso County boasted the largest population of sheep in the state at 120,000 critters.

This produced about 560,000 pounds of fleece!

Watch as the sheep are sheared with traditional and modern equipment and see a demonstration of expert sheepdog handling.

There will also card, spinning, dyeing, and weaving demonstrations. Visit the general store to buy gifts made from our very own sheep!
