They just appeared. It must have happened some nights ago. A local taking a walk first saw them.
Since then, these things kept staying in the pasture, showing a behaviour that can’t be described in other words than “grazing” - but without actually doing it. From what can be said, no communication attempt has been noted. Only, a deep and subtle humming can be noticed when getting closer. People are unsure if this humming can be heard or rather sensed or felt.

Inspired by a roadtrip through Scotland and the scottish highlands I recently returned from.
Lada by INuruhusssen over at Blendswap, modified by me.
Recycled the mechs from an older project. They are kitbashed from a set.

This reminds me of a trip to Algonquin Park years ago. By the side of the road was a moose cow with its calf. And somebody had left their car with their point-n-shoot camera (this predated ubiquitous smartphones) and was walking further and further towards the two to get a closeup of the cute li’l baby moose.
This scene gives me precisely the sort of shudder I got then. Well done!
Thank you and yes, I had a similar situation being the inspiration but instead of a moose it were sheep flocking the road and one car had stopped right at the roadside to take some pictures of the sheep “blocking” the lane
