I have 2 angora goats and 7 ewes to be sheared bi-annually. We have advertised for a shearing service or shearer and had no results. I even offered to through in a grass fed freezer lamb and couldn't find a shearer locally. I have asked around and have been hunting and searching. For the very small number of animals we need to shear I opted for the Oster Showmaster shearing machine. I found it on many websites for various prices. Some much higher than others and rididulous shipping pricing. This morning I found it on Jeffers Livestock for one of the lowest prices. It also is shipping from Jeffers with a bonus PowerMax clipper anf blade as extra. 2 fer 1! I called Jeffers with a few questions and was quite pleased with the answers I recieved. I paid cash through paypal and the shearer and clipper is shipping today. The shipping cost from them was dirt cheap too. I'll let you know how it goes. The offer ends next week so I thought I would pass on a heads up if you are looking for an electric shear for wool sheep and goats. The free clipper is listed on Amazon for $118.
