These are my favourite views of our farm.
It seems to say everything about it – natural (all the bush that has been left as stock shelters), fertile (that dark green is a lovely, healthy looking barley crop), undulating.
Then the man made things – good fences and a great road that also acts as a laneway.
And as per my ‘signature’ I love all the different colours; especially the brilliant white of the shorn sheep against the green of the paddocks.
The bush on our farm was cleared by a man who understood stock. My father-in-law lived and breathed them; understood their every movement. We can lamb in the middle of freezing weather and know that our lambs will live because of the way the bush was cleared and the amount he left as shelter.
My husband has the same unique ability to understand animals. It makes working with them so much easier.
