Shearing is fun, smelly and sore. Its lots of fun because when your in the sheds you get to kick it back with your mates. I'm lucky because my gang is my family. Its easy because you've got to go outside and pick a horse or a motorbike and go to the top of the hill. You round up all the sheep and take them back down the hill to the shed.
Benita is a student from Room Eight who each holiday goes to the East Coast, there she works with the rest of her family as part of a shearing gang and works shearing sheep. This Christmas just been her gang mustered over 7,000 sheep and 300 rams.
