"'Now I hear that it is sheep-shearing time." (1 Samuel 25:7)

So, what time of the year was that? Any one know? :clueless

Generally May and June. It was quite a festival, and often associated with a time of thanksgiving, for "God had provided the wool" for clothing and commerce.

It kinda makes sense, cause you want the sheep to have their coats on in the winter, so as soon as spring comes, you wait a couple weeks to see if you've had the last frost, then you shear! We're talking the Holy Land though -- Australia's shearing time would be different, cause they voted to have winter at a different time than the rest of the world. (or something like that)

Ummm... not sure where you "farm" or "ranch", but in Texas, we don't saddle our cattle. We reserve that for horses. :huh:
