SquareOdds#3 – haystacks

My third entry in Becky’s SquareOdds challenge, is Murphy’s haystacks. Located in the west of South Australia, it isn’t too hard to see that they are not, in fact, haystacks.

The crystaline rock has been weathered into these formations, but the story displayed at the site is this:

A Scottish agricultural expert who advocated that, to produce good hay, farmers should harrow their land for the best results, was travelling with the coach when he noticed the rock formations in the distance. He informed the coach driver and passengers that this farmer harrowed his land to produce so much hay and fodder.

Murphy was the owner of the property and I hope his stock received better fodder.

I will include more photos and detail about these ‘haystacks’ in a later post.
