Natalie speaks with Will Haskin, animal keeper at Sovereign Hill. The subject is the 1850s Aussie goldfields and the prominent role animals played. Horses and donkeys were used for their power, hitched up to mining 'machinery'. Goats provided milk and goat's milk soap, whilst sheep warmed families with their wool.
