She worked her way along the hedge and then obviously decided that the apple blossom would taste better.
The funniest thing we saw was a couple of years ago when eight of the creatures decided to just come through the gate and across the lawn. However, the next gate was shut so seven of them just jumped straight over. Number 8 however trotted up and then stopped dead. She backed off a bit and tried again. Her friends were all waiting patiently on the other side of the gate. After the 4th unsuccessful attempt they obviously got fed up of waiting and started to move on, so she went back through the open gate to find a gap in the hedge, which is their usual way in. It was so funny to see. I only wish my camera had been handy that day!! It was like watching a show jumping event and the horse shying at the jump.
Anyway, that's the end of this episode of "An every day story of country folk" - with apologies to The Archers!!
Have a good day everybody, and I will be back with a card tomorrow.
