Gathering sheep for shearing
Today Chris & I gathered the front of George Island. Chris on his motorbike me in the Mitsibushi. We left at 9:00am and had the entire flock of 2,300 in the house paddock by 11:30. The sheep were not as co-operative as usual and instead of running into the wind which is normally preferred by them chose to run in the opposite direction. The light showers as predicted by the met office became a persistent light rain. Hopefully the rain will clear and we can get the sheep drafted into their individual lots of ewes, lambs and hogs.
