    wandering through Isla Riesco, I bumped into this almost forgotten ranch. Talking to the locals was fun. Then I asked whether I could photograph some of the processes. I couldn't believe the size of this sheep when I first saw it. I almost couldn't take the picture cause I was so impressed. 140KG Sheep (about 300 lbs) I've only seen this here.

    this is what they do right, i mean he is about to sheer his "little" guy, the way the photo is taken make you wonder how big the sheep would be if it stood up, it would be bigger then the man, great angle shot

    The size of the sheep compared to that of the person sheering it is amazing. Your photo perfectly captures the toughness of the work and at the same time its beauty. Well done!

    It's pretty big, something like a big pony. The sheer the genital part of the stallion because it usually gets stuck on calafate plants!

    @Deborah Johnson Much appreciated Deborah! Actually it's quite funny how easy was for the guy to handle this huge beast! Just like Cory said it was like a spoiled child :)
