Click Go The Shears!

April 4, 2018

 

One of the highlights of the Easter Parade was a mobile sheep shearing demonstration, with Barringun shearer Darryl Pierpont using the old-fashioned clippers to show how shearers used to remove fleeces. Darryl is one of the few shearers in Australia still in demand for his skill with traditional clippers. The demonstration was a chance for visitors and youngsters to see first-hand why “click go the shears” is more than just a line from our heritage, preserved in song.
