Different sort of shearing!!!
« on: July 09, 2012, 06:27:02 pm »
Thought this might be of interest.
Whilst doing a shearing demonstration at a wool event I found myself shearing something slightly different.

I was happy to help a good cause.

A new sideline outside of shearing time? Or You could throw in a human haircut for every 20 sheep?  Good job and great cause! :thumbsup:
