A strange sight at Paddington yesterday. Herds of waxy, betweeded creatures were being shepherded into pens in readiness for transport westwards. (Is this entirely humane? Indeed, is it legal?)
Apparently it's part of a pattern of annual migratory activity whereby solitary, rustic creatures from all over the British Isles flock to a field near Cheltenham where they feast on horseflesh. Presumably, it's all to do with breeding.
