How To Shear A Sheep Blindfolded

Somehow the subject of shearing sheep blindfolded came up Sunday.  I didn't believe it could be done.  Bill swore he did it all the time at fiber festivals.  

"I don't believe you."

"Yeah, I do!  Half the crowd is all for it and the other half is No, no, don't do it!"

Shaking my head.

"You just haven't been paying attention."

"Bill..."

"Here, you don't believe me?  I'll shear this next one blindfolded."

The next sheep up was Burrnie.  I know Bill well enough to know he wouldn't hurt a sheep.  He has been shearing for a long time.   Maybe it is mostly by feel?  And there are no, um, pointy parts on Burrnie, whose shape can best be described as "round".  I decided let him show me up.  

And he did.

Want to see him shear a sheep blindfolded?
