Somebody from Christchurch, New Zealand has been following my blog this week. I hope you find this one interesting.
We had an excursion from our cruise ship that took us to a working farm outside Christchurch. The farm has sheep and cows. Sheep raising has not been a profitable business lately, so they are gradually selling off the sheep for meat, and increasing the herd of cows. Meanwhile they are a popular stop for tourists who want to see sheep being sheared and herded by dogs. We watched a border collie lead the sheep from high up in the hills down to their pen.
The video shows the shearing.
