YouTube频道上completely dedicated to sheep shearing,Ayrshire, Scotland-based sheep farmerCammy Wilsontravels from farm to farm to shear different breeds of sheep.This videofeatures a handsomeValais Blacknoseram atAyrshire Valais Blacknose Farm, one of the biggest Valais Blacknose sheep flocks in Scotland.
The ram’s name: North Kilduff George.
“Now, normally, shearing a ram would take me between three and four minutes, however, this big boy will take closer to eight minutes to shear. There is so much wool on these Valais Blacknose sheep, on their legs, on their head, and even around their gentleman parts.”
And yet Wilson makes it look easy…exceptfor that first task of picking up the massive ram and flipping him over into a sitting position.
More about the breed fromThe Valais Blacknose Society:
“The Blacknose sheep originates fromthe Valais canton of Switzerland. Native to the Upper Valais region, the Blacknose graze in the Alps in the summer months June-September. Though housed through the winter, the Blacknose is a sturdy breed which is well adapted to the harsh conditions of the mountains, which can be endured even in the summer months.
“There is evidence that the Blacknose has existed since the 15th century, however they have changed greatly in appearance over the years and once resembled the likes of aScottish Blackface. Over time, characteristics have evolved to the majestic sheep we see today.”
