Hayshed

I had lots of fun playing in haysheds when young. And I have fed out to sheep on my own too — tricky business getting the holden ute to coast just at the right speed while in the back chucking out hay!

    • Hi Sue, that concrete in front is really old, could have been anything, but the timber on the hayshed hasn’t been there that long – a treated pine by the looks of it, it has greenish tinge in the sunlight. It is part of the farm next door. I keep hoping the Hereford cattle will be close enough one day to take a photo, but they never are. 🙂

  1. There is nothing like an old hayshed except perhaps an old shearing shed. The country side used to have lots of little sheds with chimneys made of iron attached onto the outside. People used to sleep in them. The timbers were hand sawn.
    Hereford cattle? Tough as old boots.

    • After looking at a couple of your postings Gerard, I can only imagine how much you had to hold yourself back from asking exactly how much fun I had in the hay!!! I was too young for such thoughts.

      Ahh, shepherds huts, used for the boundary riders, fox hunters, shepherds, on the larger properties. I think they shore sheep in the open in the olden days, after washing them. The idea of washing sheep first sounds hilarious these days! There are still some of these huts about in Victoria where people can sleep.
