Who Am I?
I have been raising sheep in central Ohio
under the name "Little Rest Farm" for over 35 years. I have
shorn a variety of sheep breeds over the past 40 years, and have shown my sheep
at local and regional fairs from Missouri to Massachusetts, winning many top
awards. I know what a top-notch shearing job can do for an animal in

I started shearing alpacas nine years ago when
my veterinarian asked me to do work for him. I hooked up with my friend Jim

shear separately for local jobs, and travel together when we can.
I love to travel and will go
anywhere for my regular shearing fees if my travel expenses are paid.
