You will recall Aesop’s fable concerning this. A young fox must have dropped this interesting ‘egg’ in our paddocks yesterday morning – found as I was going around the lambs. It must have thought it such a prize having carried it for a number of miles carefully in its mouth, doubtless salivating over the tasty treat it would be when it retired to its den. You can see that it has made Herculean efforts to ‘open’ it, before finally giving up on the challenge. What a tough old egg it was! May be some use yet. I will save it against my next episode of plantar fasciitis!
