We have the swag(s) you wish you did.
Three BuzzFeed Oz writers who were raised in rural towns decided to answer the questions our city friends had for us, and teach them all about country living.

Have you milked a cow?
Tahlia: Milked a cow? We started drinking fresh milk from a cow since birth. It’s the country way.
Lane: No, my hood was all about sheep.
Nick: I did, and it does sound like I’m making a bad joke here but it’s not as exciting as you think it would be. It look like four pulls to get a drop of milk out.
Have you watched a cow/horse/other animal give birth?
Tahlia: OK definitely not.
Lane: Nope. I’m not planning to, either.
Nick: I’ve seen both a cow and sheep give birth. Yeah that was fucked.
Do you all know how to ride a horse?
Tahlia: If by ride a horse you mean sit on top of the animal and having a minor panic attack when it takes two steps then yes, I can ride a horse.
Lane: I rode sheep as a small child?
Nick: Not solo.
