Is it true that worms come out of the sheep's wool when it's soaked in the rain?

oh my goodness, that is a bit yucky when i think of it.. haha,, I am not sure as well, i think, it could be true if the sheeps are not hygienic? maybe they are some ticks and lice but i am not sure if worms survive in sheeps wool? worms? suppose to survive in the soil or water isn't? hehe interesting! I don't find worms on my head so far... lucky i ain't sheep.

i think that this is true. worms do come out of the sheep's wool when it is not cleaned from time to time. i have learned about this from my son who has his first two years in college in agri business. when i told him that i am considering raising some sheep too, at the farm, he gave me this information. the houseflies (i don't know if other insects also do this) lay their eggs on the sheep's wool because its condition is very favorable for the purpose. we know how thick their wool is and it is kept warm by the sheep itself being a warm blooded animal.
