Albino hog

Over the last month we have had these albino hedgehogs wandering over the farm. I do worry that they will get trampled by the horses or cattle as they seem to be blind and deaf. They come out of the eucalyptus forest next to us. It was planted in the late 1800s and the mill there has been in ruin for a long least 100 years....
I like to lie in the grass and watch them. They are not concerned by night and day, which leads me to believe they are blind...and they do not notice me moving...BUT they do notice vibration and freeze. 
...beautiful beasts.
