Yesterday evening I walked out in the new pasture to see if I could get to the pond to check out what was going on down there. I found a little trail to the water and I did wonder for a mintue what was making the trail. It was too big to be rabbits. I just about gave myself and a young deer a heart attack when it popped up out of the bushes about two feet from me. I heard it first and had just enough time to think, "uh oh, that sounds big" but before I could panic it leaped up and I saw its beautiful face. Amazing. I've never seen a solitary deer before.
Did I mention we have wild turkeys too. So cool. I think I'm going to like it here. It suits me well.
