It turned out that they were situated in an old open shed down the back of a paddock filled with what could only be described as menacing guard sheep and ducks - at least a hundred animals altogether.
As I drove through the paddock the ducks came waddling at speed behind my car and were ready to meet me when I opened my door.
The sheep weren't far off as the ducks had alerted them of my intrusion. I had hardly hobbled my way over rocks, wire and tree roots to reach the shed before I had an audience of sheep, baaing at me angrily.
I was intimidated to say the least.
I sought refuge in my car to recompose myself for a few moments. I had to laugh because it was ridiculous. But I figured that even though they may have been scared of me, they far outnumbered me so I best take precautions.
I turned my radio up loud which did more to comfort me than put off the animals but it gave me more confidence as I marched through the flocks.
When I shut the gate behind me I had that heart-racing sense of accomplishment. I'd won!
