There is the best fence in Ketchum. I sometimes get to see in on the annual sheep parade. It is old and broken, but still standing up. Lovely wildflowers grow around it in the spring. It is just the coolest old fence anywhere. Do you have a favorite landmark? Is it interesting to look at in different seasons of the year?
We get shaved once a year. It’s called sheep shearing. The person who shears us uses a large electric razor. We like a clean, close, and generally smooth shave. It makes us feel light as a feather. And, we like to look at the pile of wool on the ground around us.
Our wool becomes fabric, which then gets sewn into something that people wear. Wool is used in suits, coats, and highly fashionable women’s clothing. Sometimes people pay plenty of money for our wool. Some years, however, it can be difficult for a sheepherder and rancher to sell the wool for a good price. There are some years when wool is not very fashionable. We like fashion. It’s wooolly good fun!
