I think you can always tell a person that's experienced farm life. They have this sense of freedom about them, a love for the land and all its creatures.
We don't live on a farm but knowing the kids were going to experience farm life through friends and family played a huge part in our move to New Zealand. I remember my time on farms as a kid and honestly, it's never left me.
This day was so cold it was unbearable. We were off to visit Shaun's cousin who lives on a farm that sits at what feels like the edge of the world. Because of the cold we set up camp in their wool shed and made a bike track around the wool bails. Sonny thought sliding down the sheep race was and I quote "the best".
Last stop before heading back home in gusty winds and -4 degrees was feeding the pigs and farm dogs.
Such a cool day, such cool memories.
