F14 is absolutely right, as usual.
I tried it last year...bought all the stuff, watched an expert do it several times while explaining how to, read all the books.
Took me hours to do 2 pet sheep--I think 4 or more hours--was sore, the sheep were traumatized, the wool was ruined. Just not worth it. This year, I've found a guy who'll do it for $10 bucks each and it will be money well spent.

I get mine sheared for $5.00 each, and it's the best money I ever spent. By the time you buy the tools and learn to do it (lotsa bandaids involved, for the sheep AND the shearer) you're way ahead to pay to have it done once a year.
Easier on the back too... ":^)
