With temperatures fluctuating between 19-27 degrees today, the shearers have had a hard day on their hands!

The farmer (Rob Davis) used his puppy sheep-dog-in-training to herd the sheep at 06.30AM, ensuring that temperatures were still low enough for the animals to be moved.

The sheep were gradually manoeuvred through a metal race towards the shearing equipment, where a trap door was operated to co-ordinate a 1-in 1-out system.

Each wool fleece is rolled and sold by the farmer in its raw state, and hopefully in one whole piece!

The sheep were clearly fond of their new hairdos, stopping to pose for the camera once released back in to the field.

All the best,

The Davis Family
