Sheep Shearing on Camera

The shearing of the sheep flock did in fact happen back in June, but I realise now that we still have not shared some wonderful photos that captured the occasion.

We invited Sally Appleyard along on one of the shearing days. She's a Brede Valley neighbour, she's brilliant behind the lens, and is keen to build a portfolio around the life of a shepherd.
