Here is a shot taken at a local agricultural show of a demonstration of blade shearing the way it was done back in the old days.

    Don't wanna slip with those blades, gosh they look sharp.
    Those shearers are darn quick, geez I remember when Nan used to shear the sheep and she was in her 60's and doing it.
    Very good Shot Aussieroo, look how silky the clean cut wool is clap.gif

    Thanks Skippy, it was bright sunshine on the wool and blades so it aprears more silky than it probably is.

    Howdy,

    Great shot, the shears and fresh wool being highlighted by the Sun really makes this in my eyes. Such a neat scene, well captured.
    Take care,

    Great shot. I bet that guy's hands get a little tired after a day of this activity.

    Fortunately he was only doing the occasional demonstration and not a whole days worth of shearing. But I bet they were tough old boys back in the old days shearing like that. Thanks for your comments
