So pleased to hear you enjoyed your Nogo Station Experience, Marilyn, and thank you for the great review. Deanna is certainly proof a woman can shear a sheep as well as a man (and sometimes better!).

The Nogo sheep station tour was an amazing experience. The owner Richard is a very genuine and passionate person. He is a unique individual,offering an equally unique experience of a working sheep station Would go back in a heart beat. Congradulations and well done.
