Shear Delight!

The shearers are with us today on the farm and they are shearing approximately 500 sheep today. It is an early start making sure all the sheep are in the barn and they are nice and dry ready for shearing.

Shearing this many takes the whole day and it is a legal requirement for this to be done. Shearing is a real skill and back braking!!!
