Will and Emily Murray of Glenmore Station and the South Island's Mackenzie Country spent a day last week moving 3400 ewes after the autumn muster.
Owner Emily Murray said that it was hard work bringing the sheep in from the Cass Valley but it was worth it.
"It took us six days to muster them all, and the furthest ones were 40km from the house," she said.
The ewes are sheared only once a year and this was part of their crutching.
"We do the crutching right before the ram goes out."
The Murrays have 10,000 ewes on their property.
"It is nice to have the girls back on the property, before the snow comes in," she said.
