Fencing Season forces the reluctant into the outdoors.
They'll be having their puppies soon enough, adorable
little, soft eared creatures, bumbling around in that
innocent way, but absolutely ruthless when it comes to
nibbling and soon enough they'll be scattered amongst
the undergrowth looking for gaps in fences. It must be a
game they play, Find the Gap and Win an Egg.
Nor was it just the outdoors in January that turned
Rabbit fencing season ugly. I wasn't able to
approach the task in the certain knowledge that a little
light exercise, checking the knees to see if they still
worked, would all combine to produce that sense of
purpose that enables a body and mind to prepare for
Digging Season. My sole comfort, it wasn't a wall.
