cooking and waiting

Beautiful day.  Making stew, shepherds pie, potato salad ready for shearing.  I really do not like cooking.  Thankfully mum is doing all the cake cooking for the smokos.  In limbo at the moment.  Not sure if the shearers will arrive tomorrow or Thursday.  Will find out after lunch but until then we don't know whether to go and gather Barren Island today or leave it until tomorrow.  What to do?  Drafted off the wether lambs from the rams, was hoping to get some wether lambs weighed to see if they are ready for the abattoir but just don't have enough time.  A job for after shearing. 
The Falkland Islands shearing tally was broken yesterday 461 sheep shorn in an 8 hour day.  Fantastic result. The sheep are not specially picked, bellied or crutched.
