An Australian farmer has created a huge heart out of his sheep.
Ben Jackson arranged his sheep in the shape of a heart to pay tribute to his aunt when COVID-19 restrictions prevented him from attending her funeral.
To create the shape he scattered the grain in a heart shape. When he released his flock, thousands of sheep streamed into the paddock and fill up the vast shape.
A video of the result was captured with a drone and shared with the family to display during the service.
It is not the first time Jackson has made shapes with his sheep. He started making shapes with his sheep during the early days of the pandemic, and his aunt was a fan of the creations.
Jackson had this to say.
“I felt hopeless, helpless — I didn’t really know what to do. But because I was doing a bit of feeding already, I just decided to do a massive heart in the ground, which in all earnest, pales in comparison to hers.”
