Small Lleyn are about right for me, I'm 63kg and anything heavier than that is hard going (purely down to size/weight), also little sheep eg. small ewe lambs I find hard to hold and then they tend to fight more.

I found hand shearing my hebrideans easier than using the clippers.... they have thin skins which nicked easily with the clippers..... they are now used to being tied up using a collar and rope, and i sit on a chair which saves my back..... i find it very theraputic actually and take my time with each one, i end up destressed myself, and with stress free sheep
