In Australia, sheep shearers form a caste of their own. Loud-mouthed, drinkers, brawlers, mostly from New-Zealand, they are the best in the world. They arrive at the ranches in the Spring, and if the weather is good, they shear an average of 150 sheep a day. In the evening, they are to be found in the nearest bar... But in the early morning, not one of them will be absent from duty. Tomorrow, they will return to New-Zealand or set off across the world. These shearers are the last authentic globetrotters.
