Yeah, where is "here"??
But spring has finally reached us as well - 23ish C here today, should be around 75 for you... Not too bad.

We don't have this schoolbus system in most European countries, so no chance for me this time...

Here is central OK. I should not complain but I really would like a little spring before summer sets in.

No worries, mate. Can't have it all, right?
Actually, we have schoolbuses here, but not as in the US. Here they mostly use buses from the normal public transport companies or a rented coach. So they are not uniform and therefor you will most probably not find a parking lot with more than one...

Anyway, let's go on.......

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


.....GRAB!



Orchards - as far as you can look. It was a beautiful ride through those thousands of apple trees. Even if it is a silly monoculture thing, it looks just great in spring and makes you smile on a friday night after a hard week at work.

Actually, it is indeed a cider mill as well:


cidrerie = cider mill
huilerie = oil mill




------------------------------------------------------------------------

As I assume that the grab is good, here comes the new TAG:



We stay in the "spring-mood" and now I want to see a bunch of happy sheep grazing the fresh and yummy spring gras.
I think this time it should be live animals.

Mark, that's awesome!
Nice shot, BTW! (The one with the orchard )

As the "sheep-shot" was obviously taken before I posted the tag, this can't count, I fear. But now that you know, where the beasts live, you can just ride there again!

And I thought I was the only European here... Where do you actually live and ride?
Only thing I can tell is that you have obviously been to France, Belgium, Italy and Wales..

Cheers, mate!

People don't have sheep around here. Cattle, horses, and/or kittens. We must buy all of our wool and gero meat from across the pond.



Since the end of WorldWar II, the
number of sheep in the United States
has declined from an all-time high of
56 million in 1942 to 6.2 million in 2007.
Several factors have contributed to this
sharp decline, including competition from
overseas producers and from other meat
and fiber industries.

No worries. I actually found 6 farms in my state. Just none worth riding to for a wildcard game.

I was just dropping my Google foo knowledge on ya.

I can wait

even in NZ the sheep numbers have declined dramatically....i havent been following the game closely enough..I still thought it was school buses(which we dont have, our school buses are just local bus companies)

This is from 2009

Bad gags about Kiwis and their four-legged friends might still be rife but the sheep themselves are disappearing fast.

Sheep have long fought it out with the All Blacks for the title of New Zealand's signature export.

Much of this is down to the healthy Kiwi predilection for all things lamb, mutton and wool, and a statistic from 1982 showing there were 70.3 million of the cud-chewing mammals, outstripping the the country's human population by 22 to one.

But over the past 25 years, sheep have been slowly disappearing from paddocks as everything from dry weather to government subsidy changes and tough economic conditions put the boot into farmers.

A few years ago the national flock stood at 40 million, but it has dropped further since to just 34.2 million, less than half the 1980s high and the lowest seen in almost 60 years
