Stressed, stomped, sold: Strapping to sell

We’ve all been there. Your alarm goes off, you drag yourself out of bed, still half asleep, and head to the office.

There are difficult clients and co-workers, stressful situations, big-money exchanges, and drama at every turn.

You finish a long day and toast to a job well done over a couple of cold ones, and lick your wounds after a half-tonne animal stomped on your foot.

Sound like a typical day? It is for Jamie Gowler and Jennifer Malone, strappers for Widden Stud.

The team followed the pair for a day at the recent Magic Millions Sales on the Gold Coast to learn just how tough, and rewarding, it is.

Watch the full video and forgive some of the language - it’s a high-pressure job.
