This is what our first day of shearing looked like at 6:00am!
Sheep all ready and waiting in the yards, clear skies and a wonderful sunrise, sending a message that it was going to be a special day!
We tested our new shearing shed well and truly, with 450 ewes being shorn.
It worked really well, although the shed doesn’t have a lot of storage for keeping sheep dry, so when an unexpected rain shower came through in the afternoon, we got wet sheep and had to stop!
So, only one day of shearing down, with another two and a half to go … but only when the sheep are dry, who knows when that will be!
