New Zealand Word of the Week: ‘Dags’

‘Rattle your Dags!’

If someone in NZ tells you to ‘Rattle your Dags’ they want you to hurry up.

This sheep isn’t ‘rattling its dags’.

Dags are, to put it bluntly, ‘the shitty bits on a sheep’s bum’. When the sheep runs they ‘rattle’.

Who said the New Zealanders had a preoccupation with sheep…?
