Counted and checked that all seventy cows were present and ok, then headed up to the lambing shed to help feed the ewes and do any other chores necessary there, before heading back to the homestead for breakfast at about 9.00 AM.

Spent much of the day after that on a tractor, taking ewes and the three day old lambs out to the fields.

Sorry, no photos; that was back in the '90s, before digital cameras became ubiquitous. The best I can offer is this screen shot from Google Maps:

there are old motorcyclists and bold motorcyclists
but you seldom meet an old, bold motorcyclist
