New Zealand farm shearing sport

This handout photo taken on March 2, 2012 and provided by the Golden Shears organisers shows wool gatherers collecting fleeces from the stage at the 15th World Shearing Championships in the New Zealand town of Masterton. What began as friendly rivalry in the remote shearing sheds of Australia and New Zealand has become a fully fledged sport in the past 30 years, attracting teams from 25 countries to the 2012 championships in the North Island town.
