Dog waits for penning up work

Anonymous art of an unknow shed hand

Shed, Dip Road

Another bale full

Fast work on the wool table

Shearing, Glenfalloch

Smoko time

Woolsheds always have interesting wall hangings

Skirting the fleece

Overflowing bins threaten chair territory

High cloud over Mt Hutt, good weather for shearing

Sharp combs wait their turn

Shorn, ready to head back to green pastures


Wool flows so smoothly that it looks easy

A full catching pen helps

Tip, faithful dog, Fairfield circa 1985

Not much insulation, but plenty of ventilation in this shed
