That’s right – we now have a market mascot. Michael the Merino…and boy is he cute! If you’ve visited us recently you would have seen Michael walking around the market on a harness with our market manager Tamara’s daughter. He’s even made an appearance at the 666 ABC Canberra studios! He’s now six weeks old and growing by the day. He’s a Merino, a breed bred for wool, and he loves visiting the market to educate people about where wool comes from. People love meeting and patting him, and asking questions about the breed. Once Michael is too big to visit the market he’ll retire and join the rest of Tamara’s flock on her property. Keep an eye out for Michael on your next market visit.
