Do you have a save for this one? I remember specifically sitting and waiting for it to happen and shearing again, so I'll probably need it (it's also possible I broke something later on). You can upload them at

Oh, and some people have suggested that destroying and rebuilding the farmers' workshops might work around this. So far I've found that to be extremely unreliable -- sometimes it works, but often it doesn't. In this particular save, destroying all 3 farmers' workshops and rebuilding them had no effect.

Maybe they have to be rebuilt after another animal arrives on the map. The one case where I know it worked, some animals arrived (pets of a migrant wave) while I was destroying/building.

It was a text problem -- they'll become shearable eventually. I fixed the text for next time.
