ShangriLa Actually Maxine, i used to worry about them getting cold too. Once i came upon this sheep that hadn't been shorn for a very long time. There was a story about one found in New Zealand also. The wool just keeps growing and growing and can become extremely heavy. So they really do need to be shorn, but perhaps not quite so roughly. But that's about money, as always.
