A little bit of wildlife….

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Just three today, from walks at Linford in the morning and from Appleslade Inclosure in the afternoon.

A young New Forest Pony foal

A young New Forest Pony foal as interested in me as I am in him.

A belted galloway in a big hurry

On Mount Hill in the afternoon, a whole herd of cows came galloping down the hill after me, well not after ME, but behind. Once I had Harry out of the way and lying down, I managed to catch one of the stragglers as he (or she) thundered down after the others. My heart a little in my mouth as my presence sent him wide and here he is crossing a large rabbit warren, you can see a sandy patch that surrounds one of the bigger holes. I was glad when he made it safely down!

I'd love to hear from you...
