Mark gets to do some manly man stuff again.
Thought our friends in America (and South America) might enjoy seeing how a sheep is shawn. The poor things were left a little long and so they must have been sweltering in the 30 degree heat. They will be happy to have their winter coats off now.
Mark's Dad in his time was a very good shearer and tells me he could do 250 odd in a day - I think though they are happy they only have a few to look after now-a-days.
