To shear or not to shear; that is the question

    So I have 3 Awassi sheep, 2 are 4 months old and the lady is a bit less than 2 months. The temp is holding steady around 90f. Their wool looks thick enough to make them uncomfortable in the sun and the pant. Should I shear them?

    I probably would, however I normally shear lambs when they are yearlings.
