So what makes the sheep/ram figure so endearing? And why is there a 15m statue of a merino ram in the heart of country New South Wales?
Lord knows, but the fact that I encountered one historic ram on my way home from Canberra, was a thrill, a good, sheep thrill. It was a shear delight, I’m telling you.
Shepherd’s pie, enough with the baaad puns already.
I apologise for not having written more blog posts in the past week. I have been absolutely inundated with work, following which my head took a self-beating, in the form of nasty migraine attacks. In any case, I will keep this post short and simple, and have you entertained with some photographs of my recent visit to the Big Merino.
Standing tall at an impressive 15m and erected in 1985, the Big Merino is the iconic darling of Goulburn – a regional town in Australia. It makes for a baaa-ry interesting stopover in between the major cities of Sydney and Canberra.
I remember the day was positively cold, but I was adamant that I would not wear my big coats to avoid looking like my giant, sheepish counterpart.
That’s it from me this week, folks! More posts to come when my assessment period hurtles to an end.
