Frank and Ned like to watch the men wash the sheep.

When it is time to shear the

[ocr errors][merged small]

sheep, the men wash them in the brook, to make the wool clean.

The sheep do not like the water, and, of course, try to get away from the men.

While Frank and Ned were looking on, one of the sheep got away, and ran out of the brook.

He shook the water from his wool and ran away. The man ran after him

him and caught him by the horns.

Then he took him back and gave him a good wash.

The water in the brook was clear, and the sheep came out with their wool nice and clean.

Then they were put into a small yard, or pen, and the men cut off their wool with large shears.

As each one had his wool cut off, he was let out of the pen.

“I should think they would take cold after the wool is off,” said Ned.

“No, Ned,” said Frank. “They shear sheep only when it is warm, as it is now. The wool grows very fast, and by winter they have a warm coat again."
