I shear them......It makes it easier to skin the sheep and to keep the wool off the meat..(don't need them kinky hairs in the food ya know)

If ya want the wool, or can sell it, go ahead and shear 'em. The butcher ain't gonna care one way or the other.

When I send my lambs off, I don't bother as there's very little market for the wool around here. If one has a particularly nice pelt, I'll ask him to save the hide and I send it off to have it tanned. Got some beauties over the last few years. Got a black one the wife wants to have done this year.

Have been looking for a place that would tan sheepskins for sometime. Any info you could send or post would be appreciated.

Don't know where you're located, but I know folks who have used the Bucks County Tannery in Pennsylvania and approve of it. Their phone is 215-536-6614.
