WE GOT BABIES!!!!
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Yes, we have babies....well we have had for several weeks but I couldn't get many pics because they were so tiny and with mama and mama was nervous so I didn't want to bother her.
There are actually 2 mamas and 3 babies but until they get a bit older I want to let them keep getting friendlier.
This is the back of our property.....20 acres and usually the whole back of it is waist high in hay but the farmer we let hay the land (we let him take it so we can walk around back there and ue the land and see the animals.
When I can I will get pics of all of them There is this mama and she has twins every year. There are 2 other females and they have one apiece and then there are the bucks. The mama that has twins always has one male and one female at least for the last 4 years that is how she has been and usually she has one male and one female per year.
Now these mamas and babies are Leary of me (I guess I'm scary lol) but John, almost from the time they can walk and all the other deer get to know him and he can walk right up to them. He grew up on a farm where they raised deer so he has had a lot of "training" so to say. And now we have our own deer. I just thought I would share with with you all. They really are amazing to be around. Oh, and he feeds them hay, and bread and carrots and apples (yes, bought at Walmart). And grain blocks too so we know they are healthy. The only thing missing is the fox that we had here for 3 years...she must have finally died but she ate well too!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and are enjoying summer. I do hope it doesn't go too quickly!
