Philip Fisher - Singing Shearer
“ I've Never Slummed a Pen! ”
New: I am now starting to repair spinning wheels, please see new page and contact me for further information.
I am a professional sheep shearer based in South Yorkshire, close to the motorway network.
I am covered by Public Liability Insurance. I am willing to travel anywhere within reason. I currently have jobs in Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria, County Durham, Northumberland, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Essex, Norfolk, Sufffolk, Cambridgeshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire. I also have jobs in Scotland and Wales.
As long as my travel costs are covered I am prepared to travel to most areas of England, Scotland and Wales.
I am prepared to shear flocks of any size, I have my own shearing trailer for larger jobs and am happy to set up and work on a large job for as long as it takes.
I'm willing to take on the more difficult jobs that other shearers tend to shy away from, ie. large or small sheep or flocks where there are many different breeds. I am happy to shear any size, breed or number of sheep. I also have experience shearing fine wool breeds such as Polwarth and Corriedale.
I am also a professional blade shearer.
I have experience shearing a variety of breeds, including: Balwen, Beulah Speckle Face, Beltex, Black Welsh Mountain, Boreray, Castlemilk Moorit, Charollais, Cotswold, Dalesbred, Derbyshire Gritstone, Devon and Cornwall Longwool, Dorset, Friesland, Galway, Gotland, Hampshire Down, Herdwick, Hebridean, Icelandic, Jacobs, Kerry Hill, Leicester Longwool, Lincoln Longwool, Llanwenog, Lleyn, Lonk, Manx Loughtan, Masham, Mule, Norfolk Horn, North Ronaldsay, Ouessant, Oxford Down, Rouge de l'Ouest, Rough Fell, Ryeland, Scottish Blackface, Shetland, Shropshire, Soay, Southdown, Suffolk, Swaledale, Texel, Welsh Mountain, Wensleydale, White Faced Woodland, Zwartbles and a variety of crossbreeds.
As the Australian song goes “ I've never slummed a pen, me lads - whatever it might contain”
My aim is to shear every sheep to as high a standard as possible, in a relaxed and professional manner.
I allways shear alone and never employ other shearers, anyone I have helping me on jobs is usually a member of my family.
I can set up almost anywhere, under cover or in a building is preferred, I can also set up and work in the field if required.
I am available for shearing demonstrations and film work.
I will always try to give priority to cases where shearing is needed on welfare grounds, eg. flystrike etc.
