All kinds of animals are raised in and around metro Atlanta. And while chickens and cows might be the first animals you think of some farms still raise sheep. Scott Fuss is a professional sheep shearer who tells us that adult sheep are shorn once each year. That's the process where the wool -- or fleece is cut off by a shearer.
