Enjoying the hospitality in a local village pub in the Cotswolds very close to home I noticed a good number of farming and equestrian types.  

 My work for well-known farming magazine years ago had honed my skills at reading their personalities from stance, dress and demeanour.   

One young man, probably in his mid-twenties, very smartly turned out, well spoken, well informed, was probably the son of a well off landowner or land manager. His youth hinted he had a way to go to build up real experience. I wondered with the opportunities and challenges of today both in terms of Brexit and Climate change what challenges lay before him. My conclusion was one day he may have great opportunities and possible landownership. I thought it appropriate he became my muse; an excellent thoughtful hare depicted here thinking on and planning his future.
