Welcome to the website where you will find pictures, videos and information about sheep shearing and the services I provide for people with sheep on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
My name is Pieter DeMooy and I started shearing in 4-H when I was about 15 years old. Sheared in New Zealand, Australia and UK in late 80′s and early 90′s where I had the good fortune to work with some of the best shearers in the world at that time. Left the shearing industry in 1991 and moved back to Canada where I worked in Landscaping and Floral Distribution until 1996 when I bought out my employer and became the owner of Coleman Flowers.
In 2002, my friend and local shearer, David Nichols, passed away suddenly leaving many people wondering how their sheep were going to get clipped. Still knowing how to get the wool off I made my services as a shearer available once again on Saturdays only ( sort of! ). Although I have had some days that really let me know how hard this job is, the past 9 years I have been able renew many old friendships from my previous time as a shearer as well as meeting many new ones.
Other than shearing sheep on local farms, I have also done shearing demonstrations at local fairs and private functions. Entering shearing contests again, including the Calgary Stampede and National Western Stock Show in Denver are a great way I test and improve my skills.
Prices and a schedule of where I am shearing are available on this site as well as a page on the history of shearing with pictures of some of the antique gear from my modest personal collection.
Be sure to check out the ‘shearing videos’ page to view some clips of me shearing sheep!
The ‘links’ page will take you many useful sheep industry related websites and also has the link to my wholesale flower business, so you can check out my day job!
Thanks for visiting my website – Pieter
