Yesterday Dion King broke the world record when he took the wool off 866 sheep in 9 hours

He has been trying for some time and yesterday he did it!!!

New Zealand is a farming country and so shearing has been very much a part of many New Zealanders lives over the years. We in fact, the world over, have a reputation 0f being skillful shearers beating many world records in our time. To see some history about shearing in New Zealand click here

    Hey Jen, I don’t mean to complain, honest, but it is rather difficult reading your posts when they seem to intertwine with your introduction.

    But that is wonderful about that record.

    It’s the same way on my computer too, Jen. Your posts run into you sidebar.

    It always amazes me how fast those people can shear a sheep. I don’t think I can comb my hair that fast!

    Strange!!
    We can view them ok
    what internet browser are you using? and what screen resolution are you on, is it on 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600? is best on 1024 x 768
    Muzz is trying to figure it out and hes a computer technician so hopefully we will be able to do something.

    Most common is the Internet cache is full overlaps downloaded cache of fonts being corrupted trying to load up, but try changing your resultion to 1024 x 768, now to do this is go to control panel, then display and the settings and then change the resolution to 1024 x 768.

    Hope this helps let me know if this still persists.

    thanks
