we bought our house in France with two fields attached – about seven acres in total. The first time we saw them, this piece of agricultural ‘kit’ was parked up just inside the gate.
I believe it’s a mobile feed dispenser for sheep (our neighbour, who had a flock of sheep at the time, used the fields for grazing). Sadly, it was gone by the time we completed the purchase.
Perhaps it went to a museum although, given the notable dearth of sentimentality among those who actually have to live off the land, it could just as easily have been converted to firewood.

Last Friday, two days before our twin grandsons’ birthday, was also their last day in the prep, before moving up to senior school in September. So naturally Granma of the unlimited talents rustled up some treats fro the boys to share with their classmates.
