Our dorper sheep are shedding

It must be getting warm out because our sheep are taking of a layer. It definitely has warmed up after quite some delay and our sheep are looking pretty funny. They are called hair sheep because they shed unlike wool sheep who need to be sheered every year.  The shedding seems to be quite random with some of them losing wool on their butts and others mostly under their stomachs.
