I think I've been begging my dad to shear a sheep since I was eight or nine years old, but I was never allowed.
– One of the shearers interviewed

– One of the shearers interviewed
I always try to make it not guys vs gals, just competitors versus competitors.
– Champion shearer Emily Welch
A stunning slice of rural life and the gutsy women who share a passion for shearing.
