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. 120,000 sheep produced about 560,000 pounds of fleece.

Join us at the Ranch to experience a slice of our Colorado heritage. Watch as the sheep are sheared with traditional and modern equipment and see a demonstration of expert sheepdog handling. There will also be carding, spinning, dyeing, and weaving demonstrations. Visit the general store to buy gifts made from our very own sheep!

Purchase tickets at the gate.
