Shearing a real sheep was probably something these Japanese students
never thought they'd ever do in their lifetimes.
But it just goes to show that unexpected and unlikely opportunities
can present themselves at any time.
A small group of students from Minokamo in Japan are visiting Dubbo
in a sister city arrangement and spent some time at TAFE Western's
Dubbo College Rural Skills and Environmental Campus. Teacher Frank
Roberts was happy to show the visitors how to remove a sheep's fleece.
The unidentified sheep at the centre of the activity didn't seem to
understand what all the fuss was about and seemed annoyed that it had
to pose mid-clip for this awkward photo.
