Flora and Fauna

Still without a car, my walks are restricted to as many variations of track around Linford, Shobley and Hangersley that I can make up. However, the long walk round Shobley, through Linford and up through the fields below Hangersley is my favourite and renders lots of interest on each one.

Chestnut Mare and Foal

The New Forest Pony foals are starting to appear around the Forest, this chestnut mare and foal are among the first I’ve seen.
