Day two lamb marking

It was a frosty start to the day as this image of the sheep in a field before we rounded them up illustrates. The work similar to yesterday also included mulesing, a procedure used to prevent fly infestations in merino sheep used in the wool industry. I was given the task of giving vaccinations and applying anesthetic. Again i enjoyed being outdoors and working as part of a fun friendly team even though the work was hard and messy.
