I’m a slight person and I always wondered if shearing would be doable, most mature ewes weigh 1.5 x what I do. Doing five ewes is a satisfying accomplishment. My legs and shoulders are still sore, but my back is not sore at all.
My fleeces sure didn't come off in one piece and shearing may not be my next career choice yet it is very rewarding to have experienced one more facet of sheep and wool.
