Trips to Suffolk are brilliant, but I am quite tired now. *flops*
In addition, while I’m on here, now is probably a good time to mention that I’ve been busy recently and will probably continue to be so for the next few weeks at least. Currently I’m using tumblr as a mixture of “look at these cool things I’ve seen!” and “where are some puppies, I need to be calm”. I’m not ignoring anyone, I just haven’t got a lot of time/energy to reply to posts :)
Here, have a giant bonus pig:
(If you don’t like pigs, sorry. Imagine your favourite animal having fun at the beach.)
Horses, Kentwell Hall, Suffolk.
The top photo is about as interested in me as they got. That was when they thought I might have food. Shortly afterwards, they realised that I wasn’t going to feed them, and wandered off to eat grass.
They did let me stroke their noses briefly, but they were so big, I was a little intimidated. Their heads were on a level with mine - when they were bending down to look at me. They were big solid horses. I loved them.
There were three others, but two were in a different field, and the third - which I think was a Suffolk Punch - didn’t deem me worthy of its presence. These were my favourite animals of the day.
My favourites. Sorry, other animals, but you don’t measure up to the horses at all. Even if they are sort of scary. (I grew up in a town, we don’t have horses, I am not sure when head movements mean ‘back off’ or ‘I have a fly on me’.)
Fluffball chicks, Kentwell Hall, Suffolk.
They have a proper name. I think they belong to the rare breeds farm, too. So fluffy.
Points for spotting the intruder.
Poitou Donkeys, Kentwell Hall, Suffolk.
Much bigger than I am used to donkeys being. And so so cool. They are supposed to look like that, all matted, they’re not being neglected.
introspectivenavelgazer, I know these are not Highland Cows, but as shaggy animals I thought they might interest you anyway.
Went to Suffolk! Saw lots of cool animals, including these. They’re my second favourites.
Things I have discovered while test-packing my suitcase today:
You can fit five pairs of ankle socks inside an ice skating boot.
