Shearing

The shearers arrived this morning bright and early to start shearing about 5000 sheep. We used to shear most of our sheep in January, but we are gradually shifting to an earlier shearing.
Here are some photos of the action in the shearing shed this morning.



And then there is Hugh. Riding his pink bike with the flowers on, and wearing his pink singlet - the hand-me-downs from three older sisters. Note the black tyre on the rear wheel of the bike. It had to be replaced when he blew the old one doing skids (but I think it might have been worn a bit thin by previous users.)
