After tea, the sheep were herded into the corral. The station had a great "sheepdog" that was half dingo and half some other herding breed (Unfortunately, I don't remember the breed). They trained the dog to walk on the back of the sheep while the sheep are in the chute. Its hard to explain, but you can see the video here.
here. As you can tell, I'm not much of a videographer. Upon completion they laid out the sheared fleece.
All in all a fun day with interesting demonstrations. Its probably as close as I will ever get to shearing a sheep, as I far prefer the end product.
