Sheep farmer, Hanna Marriott, celebrated Australia Day by laying out food for her sheep in the shape of the national flag and the word, "OZ" - a slang term sometimes used for the country Australia. Although a day late for Australia day, which falls on January 26th, more than a thousand sheep were used to make the creation. The wooly creatures followed a vehicle that left barley and lupin behind it as it drove. Marriott was happy to turn the mundane chore of feeding the sheep into something different to get into the Australian spirit.
