Where's My Flock Gone? by FireflyPhotosAust Where's My Flock Gone? by FireflyPhotosAust
We were wandering around the Bathurst Showground just before dusk on the weekend and I happened to look up and spotted this weather vane with a Merino Ram on it instead of a rooster. This gives you an indication of the importance that sheep farming has played in the area.

At least being up this high he could keep a better on on his flock:D

I have only ever seen roosters on them before and was wondering if anyone else has seen unusual weather vanes.
