Taken on our visit to Gigrin Farm on Friday we were lucky to get the above visitor, out of the two that visit I just HAD to get the one decorated with 51.
Many of you will know what leucistic means but for those that do not take a look at the link below. I discovered a new condition and word, Xanthochroism, just need some guidance on how to bring it up in conversation at our next dinner party.

It will be interesting to see if it passes the condition on to any young.
