Cormo Shearing Video Clip

Here's a glimpse of my shearer, Andy Rice, in action as he unfleeces one of my Cormo ewes. I am rough skirting the fleece as it comes off the sheep, which saves a ton of time on the skirting table. On shearing day last week we repeated this process 33 times. 

I was exhausted by the day's end. I don't know how Andy manages to do this day after day at this time of year, with lots of travel in between gigs. It is just plain hard work.
