CLICK GO THE SHEARS............



The very interesting shearing shed activities and livestock that was very popular with the crowd.  We waited until 3.30 hoping the hoards of kids would be on their busses and back to all their schools before we ventured into the shed......we made the right decision....

The shearer was of the old guard as he wasn't bent into his harness.....most of shearer's today always use the support to help protect their backs....Hard yakka being a shearer....my hubbie knows...He has been there done that.......
A demonstration of how it was done in the "olden days" - clipping away with hand shears...... 


An inside look at the size of the original shed....I posted a link about the history of this station in a prior blog WOOLSHED HISTORY HERE..  again if you are interested - It sure is worth a look..... 

And finally this fine example of a Ram - It was so huge it looked like a cross between a sheep and a Shetland pony.  We were assured of its fine lineage and gob smacked at the worth of this fine breeding animal - many thousands of $'sssssss but worth every penny.  The wealth this Ram can produce for the farmer is amazing...
 
That's all for now from MLR.......CHEERS....
