We have a chippy-chipmunk in our midst so I bought a Himalayan salt lick which might, at best, solve the problem or, at least, keep said chipmunk occupied with something else to do apart from eating my fences. Little sod-bag.
So in a Force 10, or so, give or take, I hung up the salt lick on a sturdy fence strainer. To be fair, though, I usually distribute salt-licks this time of year. This is when they want them most which is odd considering the amount of sea salt that is around.
(I adore Hetja’s expression – such a wonderful lady)
Anyway, they had their hard-feed and then I showed them their new lick.
And I could see that Hetja was thrilled with it, trying to bite off chunks. Wicked lady!
She showed Sóley-her-Foalie who had a tentative but interested sniff too.
And then she had a shot at it too.
I think I will get a few more for the others. Everyone likes a salt lick. If the chippy-chipmunking goes on, however, I shall paint the fences with my concoction (patent pending) of chilli infused oil! That usually stops everyone in their tracks. And then it’s war!
