COVID restrictions brought out the creative skills of this sheep farmer.
When COVID-19 prevented Ben Jackson in Australia from attending his beloved aunt’s funeral 250 miles away, he decided to display his love in a unique way.
“At those times of grief, you feel really helpless, you don’t know what to do, what to say,” Jackson shared with Royce Kurmelovs for the Guardian. “Especially in these COVID times, no one can prepare for that border-closure grief, not being able to say cheerio or be there when she passes. It’s pretty difficult.”
The sheep farmer from New South Wales decided to use his talent of creating “sheep art” to form a huge love heart made from hundreds of pregnant ewes.
