They had finished shearing all the 2-tooth ewes by mid morning and crutching the hoggets by soon after midday so it was a pretty short and sweet day.
We were able to enjoy a leisurely lunch with the guys before they headed off back home again.
Shanni went down and took a few photos for me.
Tim is usually fully occupied during shearing with keeping sheep up to the shearers and bringing them in and letting them out and keeping everything ticking along.
One major hiccup this time – someone let about 30-40 sheep out into the wrong yard which meant he had to do some unnecessary sorting up by hand – which totally stuffed him – frustrating
The closest sheep are waiting to be shorn and the ones in the middle pen have been done and are waiting to be let out into the yard.
They get let out and then later on Tim moves them back up to the paddocks.
A rather idyllic picture I thought
