It has, since, been revealed, that the sheep were in the large undulating field.
The cows were in an adjacent field to the one that the sheep were in.
And the three horses were currently tearing at some short-bladed shrub grass in the field beyond that.
There were no pigs in any of the fields.
Alpacas (or Llamas) might have been present in the triangular-shaped field near to the stream. but no one could confirm this.
Goats had been kept in the ‘Paddock’ as it was called, but they had eaten their way to freedom, and their current whereabouts were unknown – even to themselves.
That was all you could say about the inhabitants (or not) of the fields beyond Northleigh Ferrers.
Not that it was of any interest to anybody.
