This post is something a little different from what you are probably use to from me. No pink,no glitter and glam, no frilly girly stuff....just me and where my heart truly lies....
Picture in your head something like this.
This is Drovers Run and it just happens to be the homestead from my most loved tv show, Mcleods Daughters.
My dream is to live somewhere like this, complete with a thousand head of cattle, horse breeding and training facilities (so my sis could join me), crop growing, sheep shearing, you name it, if its dirty and hard work then i want it.
Yep i am and always have been a country girl at heart. I would trade in my pretty pink boots for a muddy pair of gum boots and my Driza Bone any day.
Growing up my sister and i always had horses. Every day after school, straight to the paddock, and every weekend too. We both entered lots of shows and won lots of ribbons. My sister went on to breed Arabian horses which is how i came to own my beautiful boy Cobi.
When we lived up the coast i would race to the paddock in the middle of the night in severe thunderstorms, trapse through the mud to throw more rugs on him and stand in the freezing cold feeding him warm weet bix to warm up his belly. To me thats heaven, its everything.
Years and years ago before i met Shane, i lived with a guy and we raised and owned beef cattle for a while. I know you are trying to imagine ME out there in the pouring rain helping a heffer to calf, fixing fences, worming the cattle in the round yard i helped build and getting pooped on! I look back on it and my face just lights up. YEP girls i love COW POO !! LOL.
So my dream is that some day (hopefully when im not too old to still do all the things i love) i'll have my property and Shannon The Country Gal will be riding off into the sunset......oh and can i take my cowboy Aaron Jefferies with me???
Hmmm dont think Shane would be too happy about that one ! Oh but wouldnt it make the hard work more fun.....
So there you go....a little bit of info that i am sure most of you wouldnt have known :)
Oh ok, i confess...... my horse had a PINK stable rug.
There you go, i mentioned pink ! ha ha ha.
