A visit to a sheep property

 Last holidays I visited a sheep property. I helped in the shearing sheds and in the yards.

On the first day the Merino wethers were crutched. I helped by sweeping up after therouseabout picked up the wool pieces. Shearers start early (at 7.30 am).After lunch, we started shearing the lambs. There were more than 400 so we didn't finish untilthe next day. Once again I was sweeping and picking up dags.I was tired by the end of the day in the shed but our work wasn't finished. We all had to helpto get the wethers and lambs back into the paddocks. As well, we had to get a mob of ewesand their lambs into the yards for shearing the next day. Then it was time for tea (that's whatmy nanna calls dinner).

 This was a very long day but I enjoyed it a lot.
