ANDALUCIA expat Chris Stewart is back doing what he does best.

The former Genesis drummer has been spotted showing off his sheep shearing skills on a woolly friend at Nerja’s Donkey Sanctuary.

Stewart was helping the sanctuary celebrate its 9th birthday by treating resident sheep Chuleta to a celebrity shear.

The rock star turned sheep-shearer turned author escaped to southern Spain nearly 25 years ago and now owns a sprawling farmhouse in Alpujarras.

He recounted Andalucian experiences in the best-selling Driving Over Lemons, making a name for himself in the literary world.

And the expat insists rural Spain is now his home for life; so will stay in Andalucia whether he’s writing, farming or making music.

Along with his shears, Stewart also brought his guitar to the sanctuary and was joined by local musicians to provide live music for the birthday celebration.
