We rode dogs, sheep, cattle, not just horses

Rick riding mum’s pet sheep Bubby Pet. I think we all had a go at riding Bubby at some stage. I can assure you this happy photo, and subsequent photos of the other children on Bubby, did not last long.
It all ended badly and in tears. Usually Bubby did some double flips, seemed to turn inside out, and the rider was dumped unceremoniously on the ground.
Bubby was like an elephant, she never forgot. So much so that if we dared to walk into a paddock Bubby was in, she would chase us, and knock us with her head, she head butted us, non stop, until we ran screaming to jump up onto the first and nearest fence we could find, to escape from her.
We loved you Bubby Pet
Brother Richard riding the sheep. The proud look did not last long.
