The annual shearing day usually happens in the run up to Christmas. With the flock already gathered in the pens, the whole community helps to sort and shear the sheep.

Sheep Shearing Day, December 2020

Report and photos from Kelly Green and Rachel Green

Sheep Shearing was held on Saturday 12th of December 2020. It was a lovely day and the children were very excited as it was Sheep Shearing Day! Everyone (mainly the children) enjoyed running and chasing, trying to catch the sheep and lambs. They then had the very tricky task of bringing them to the individual family pens, hoping they didn't get away. Everyone enjoyed their day out and afterwards families gathered to have a braai and relax after a hard day of chasing and shearing sheep.
