Yup flystrike has been bad down our way too. Not nice at all, apparently the wet months washed much of the pour-on treatment away leaving them vulnerable.

Apparently it was worse this year even than last, which was pretty horrendous. Not a pleasant job shearing away the mucky wool on their backsides to make the maggots leave and then spraying them. Then you get back in the landy and find the stray maggots crawling on you and stuck to your legs/jeans....ick!

In 27 seasons of hunting with hounds, none of the packs Ive been with have ever called a days hunting off because its too cold, what happens in the rest of the country is of no interest to me.........Carreg
