Reservations for new clients
In order to reserve your space in the schedule, we do ask that new clients send a non-refundable $40 deposit, to be applied to the full shearing cost at shearing time.
During peak shearing season (late March through late May), I book up a month or more in advance. Please do not wait until you see that your sheep are hot to think about calling. I urge you to phone or email in February or March to set up your shearing date. Facilities without indoor shearing available should provide rain dates.
If you need to cancel, please give me the courtesy of at least 24 hours notice; I have a long waiting list starting in early April. New clients will be asked to send a deposit ensuring that their spot is reserved.
Please call 301-349-0802 to schedule your shearing, or fill out the shearing request form!
