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 the rouseabout 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 until the next day. Once again I was sweeping and picking up
I was tired by the end of the day in the shed but our work wasn't finished.
We all had to help to get the wethers and lambs back into the paddocks. As
well, we had to get a mob of ewes and their lambs into the yards for shearing
the next day. Then it was time for tea (that's what my nanna calls dinner).
This was a very long day but I enjoyed it a lot
