Shearing Days


Paul Desmond working up a sweat.

A few minutes rest at smokeoh.

Inside shed view.
 

Shorn sheep being branded before release.

Shed cutout at the Keefe's.

Wool away at home.
 

Shearers hand piece.

Shearers having a cold one (literally)

Some evening re hydration.

Sunday morning, quiet reflection.

Whilst modesty precludes me from including "The Shearers Lament" here, I have included two more nice little poems, again from Henry Lawson, called "The Shearers Dream" and "The Shearing Shed".
