Life on the Land

Normandy Station - Shearing/ Crutching

If you have ever been in a shed at shearing time you know the vibes.

Beats pumping, shearer’s well…. shearing. 

Rouses getting about picking up fleeces and sweeping up scraps.

The bigger kids in the pens bringing up sheep and wrestling them ready for the shearer’s to grab. 

The smaller kids sitting up out of the way watching the action and the littlest of them all at the house napping while the cook puts together a delicious platter of home baked goodies.
