A Rural Collection of Collections

Today’s age related ride would take me via a circular route to Kencot, where I would endeavour to answer a local question required of my British Cycle Quest attempt. Whilst out I would keep an eye open for collection opportunities.

Another hedge destroyed by an errant vehicle. Today was a typical UK winters day, bright, sunny though a cool north westerly wind.
Collection of straw bales, near Eaton.
These have been felled and stacked in the last ten days or so,
This was the best view I could obtain of these junior pigs.
Winter feed?
Either a few months early or a lot of months late.
This is my goal for the day, Kencot.
Stocking up for the winter?
Came across this gaggle near Charney Bassett.
Loved the colours of this collection. Another great day out on the bike.

    As a fan of farm animals, I congratulate you on your collections of sheep, pigs, and cows — the livestock trifecta.

      It was a pity I could only find one horse at a time.

    A nice set of collections. And as I’m typing this, I’m looking out my window at a collection of snowflakes falling from the sky.

      Thanks, lets hope that snow doesn’t get too deep.

    Nice collections — particularly the winter feed rolls, and logs.
    Watched a fascinating documentary about castles. How they were made and why constructed the way they were. Are there any fairly close by to you?

      Thanks Rich.
      Oxford has a castle, around 9 miles from where we live. it date back to the 12th century and was converted into a prison after the English civil war. It’s now a tourist attraction, though not very busy over the last few months.

    Nice collections. Your hay (Straw?) bales look very different from ours.

      Thanks Nancy, if you mean the black plastic bales I think they silage which baled fresh cut grass and used as animal feed.
