Moo2Ewe and friends

Now I live on a dairy farm where as you can imagine there are a lot of cows who certainly pay their way. A number of diverse animals alive and life like also live on the farm. Some of whom are sometimes a little bit too friendly and eat far too much food 

Last night I answered a knock at my back door but it wasn’t quite what I was expecting

Clover Hill  Sheep  (17) 

I had not one but two visitors who were quite determined to come in

and cute and cuddly as they were

Running round and round the house playing

Visiting Dorper sheep admire the garden

but I wasn’t too happy when I saw this

Note the pots of salad greens which were quickly spotted by the sheep

Clover Hill Vegies no more   (70)

and gobbled up. On top of that I would say there is about one hour’s work involved in cleaning up the back laundry where they had obviously spent some time before they knocked on my back door

Then early this morning I had a visit from some of my rainforest friends.

Does it get much better than this. Early mornings and late afternoons often see my house visited by swamp wallabies

and you will notice my very colourful life like cows friends on the verandah have now

been joined by a cow I am very happy to have ‘living’ in my garden.

Clover Hill Desert Pea  (45)

At least I can be confident she wont be eating me out of house and home

 

BTW Those who read my previous post will be as pleased as the locals to see the rain has blessed us and we now have grass. My thoughts go out to farmers in NW NSW yet to be receive rain and  those in a similar situation in Queensland
