    For the first time in years we have got wild rabbits in our fields:)
    They seem to be becoming more plentiful and bolder and can even be seen in the garden before we let the dogs out -they seem to know to hop through the fence to safety before the dogs get near them:). It's lovely to see them there but it's a bit of a pain when they spook the horses by running from under their feet as we are leading them into the field:mad:

    I've never seen wild deer around here.

    There are always rabbits in other peoples fields as we drive home (they disappear when my OH goes out hunting:)) but the lurchers we used to own made sure that our fields were clear. Silly Tilly, the resident lurcher now, is a bit of a wimp and doesn't seem to realise that she can jump the fence to get her own tea so the rabbits are now colonising our fields.:)

    Nope - it's definitely that our dogs aren't wiping them out the moment they see them:)
