Maya Takes On Pro-Shear at Lake Heron Station

Last week we had a great time with Team Icebreaker at Lake Heron. There were many highlights, including a moonlit soccer game, salmon spotting and overnighting at the “New Hut” – not to mention plenty of socialising. However, the most memorable event was when Maya Gaebler, Icebreaker Marketing Co-ordinator, took on the Pro-Shear gang in the woolshed. The boys in the gang certainly felt they had met their “match.” Great stuff Maya! Advising Maya is Grant Smith, who holds the world record for shearing the most merino wethers in 8 hours – 418! Achieved in 1999, this record is still standing 12 years on.
