"Oh, Honey," he exclaimed

...come look at the deer.  Quick!  Come see this!"  To tell you the truth,  I really wasn't expecting anything but plain old deer although they are larger here than in Virginia.

Watching them cross through the woods thick with pricker bushes, they walked in single file.  The Prez had already asked me where my camera was, heading down the stairs to get it before it was too late. 


There it was...a young piebald doe.  She was so difficult to photograph though.  She remained hidden behind the trees and brush longer than any of the others that accompanied her.



She looks like a little cow, doesn't she?
I wonder if she kicks like Willow over at Glenda's.

I have never seen one of those.
Willow isn't kicking these days since I have her confined in a milking stanchion! Makes milking so much more relaxed.

We saw 8 deer on the farm recently; one with a huge rack. Of course, no camera with me at the time.

That's amazing! I've never seen one marked like that. I have seen an all white deer here in West Virginia about 10 years ago and never seen it again. I wish I had a camera with me at that time.
