MAN, I FEEL LIKE A SHEEP FARMER
Not content with breaking records and world domination on the music charts, Shania Twain is now venturing into the glamorous world of sheep farming. She plans to farm up to 15,000 merino sheep on her South Island properties in New Zealand and hopes to turn her investment into an $800,000-a-year business within two years. Shania's sheep will be tended by six full-time employees and 15 part-time staff over three years. Development projects include a $1.5 million home for Shania and husband Mutt Lange; $250,000 to build woolsheds and sheepyards; $100,000 for shearers' quarters; $360,000 in fencing; and roads and an airstrip at the cost of $80,000. Shania and Mutt paid $21.4 million for the perpetual lease of Motatapu Station and Mt. Soho Station near Wanaka, New Zealand.
