Fred finds fame at last !

Incredible news from Heather, who allowed one of last year’s rescue hogs, Fred, to have licence to roam around her garden and home (Prickly Ball Lodge, Sinfin) after he had been indelibly imprinted by humans.

The camera loves you, Fred...

Fred, who was found in someone’s kitchen down the road from us at the Lodge during the day, will be the star of the show in this year’s set of Pets At Home Christmas cards.

Heather also reports that Fred continues to rule the roost, refused to hibernate and spent much of winter either trampling around in the snow or barging into her kitchen.

We can’t think of a better-suited hog to the trappings of fame and fortune, and are glad to have made his acquaintance during his short stay with us.
