I can’t say that I’m a farmer but I did find sheep were amazing studio muses. They would follow me around like dogs and go for walks to the mailbox in our neighbourhood out in North Saanich. Slippers would be on guard whenever a strange male came near the studio and they were my inspiration to go for long walks in the pasture while they grazed on grass in the morning. In my studio on Dragonfly hill Vineyard out in Central Saanich, BC…Slippers would bang and baa at the door like clockwork each morning for breakfast or break inside trying to help herself while the others did laps around my deck. They still live with Farmer Carol Wallace on her Saanich vineyard on Vancouver Island if you ever want to visit the winery and say HI!
