I saw this family of ducks on a Thatched Property in Cornish Hall End where I swept the chimney and completed a CCTV examination for insurance purposes. Again this blows a hole in my theory that that thatched animals are mostly associated with hunting and shooting; whilst a duck is certainly a game bird that might be hunted and shot, I don’t think anyone would be shooting little chicks! So it is looking that the choice in thatched animals is driven by the owners personal taste, so where owners might be interested in field pursuits this can be reflected in their choice of thatched animals. What is not in dispute is how sweet this little family group look, quite the most pleasing group of thatched animals that I have seen so far!
As I say, I’m always on the lookout for thatched animals around the local area, but if any of my customers spot any out there, I would be more than glad to hear from you on Face Book!
