Shearing Time

Classic Kiwi stuff -- This is what NZ is renowned for. I heard once that a full day’s shearing is like running two marathons back to back and I believe it. This is a home-grown shearer who stopped counting the number of sheep he has shorn after he passed a million, quite some time ago. He can still shear close to 400 a day if need be, and the music is lively! Most of his shearing is now done in this classic old woolshed.
