Shear Like a Girl!
Kudos to Rosemarie Szostak and White Horse Manor Farm. Rosemarie taught her distinct shearing method that uses many Australian techniques, modified to be easier on the back and simpler for most women (arm strength and animal weight).
Interested in learning how to shear with this method? Let us know.
