Feeding Time

20160915-croick-12

The pigs are a lot bigger now, but they still have to share their feed with a group of Sika hinds and calves who are ready and waiting every morning. The hinds are nervous of human presence, but their greed is stronger than their fear. This photograph was taken from no more than five yards from the feeding trough.

Some of the hinds are still in their summer coat, whilst others have already moved to the winter coat. Is it a coincidence that those boldest in coming for the extra feed seem to retain their summer coats longest?

  1. So nice to see that things are fine at Croick. Several years since been up there(15 yrs) and looking forward to returning very soon. Your news and views and photos add to the urge to get back up there.
