Some Shetlands roo very nicely. There is a break in the fleece from one year to the next and if you time it just right, the sheep still has a light coating of wool to protect from sun as the new coat grows out. I have roo-ed several sheep when they began looking scruffy before shearing and the wool came away easily and they didn't mind at all. I just got 2 Shetland Cheviots that are 3/4 Shetland and it will be interesting to see if they can be rooed. I don't know of other breeds that do this.
