I was able to shear my own sheep when they needed shearing, not when the shearer could come and shear them. I was finding it harder and harder to get shearers and I needed to be able to crutch and dag my sheep, to prevent maggots from killing my sheep before the shearers came to shear.
I could always shear a sheep but struggled to get them in position and hold my sheep. Now I am able to hold my sheep and shear the sheep in the correct position
I did a hands-on shearing course last year, 600, plus I had to take off work and pay for food and housing. It was a 5-day course and I have gotten more comprehensive detail on The Shearers Post
I would always struggle getting my blades sharp to shear and dag my sheep. Now my blades are sharp all the time and I get a crisp cut through the wool when I'm shearing.
Thank you Justin and it's been awesome reading and watching your videos
I find it so understandable the way you demonstrate this hands on!!! Thank you
Those videos are great. You explain things that I have struggled with so clearly
