Sheep Shearing

Based in Ventura County, California, Hollenback Shearing offers full service mobile sheep shearing and hoof care.

Trained and worked in both New Zealand and Austria, I strive to provide efficient, clean, and stress-free shearing of each and every sheep in your flock.

Services offered:

  • Shearing
  • Crutching
  • Tagging
  • Hoof Trimming
  • Fine Clipping/Slick Shearing (club lambs)
  • Shearing to alleviate, eliminate, and prevent fly strike (myiasis)
  • Sharpening of your combs and cutters


Shearing commonly coincides with other health management tasks for flock owners (vaccinations, drenching (oral deworming), tail docking, etc.)  If you would like to complete some of these tasks on shearing day, please let me know ahead of time so we can discuss how best to arrange the flow of activities while I am working with your animals.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime for more information or to arrange a ranch/farm/house call.
