Farm & Fawn

I have been busy with another endeavor. Face Book finally reeled me in. I know, I said I was breaking up with Face Book, but they went and added a farm page to my profile and I could not bear to leave it empty. So I have been busy uploading photos. I could probably spend half a year just doing that. If you want to look at my handiwork, here is the link. It's a 'Fan' page so anyone can see it. So much to do, so little time!
Worlds End Farm

We have a guest. He looks to be a weanling white tail without his dam or the herd.




He has been living in the spruce tree line to the west of the house. I took these photos through the window as he was munching berries from the vines. He does not seem inclined to leave, so I broke down and put hay out for him last evening. I don't want to encourage him, but he is young and alone and this is a very tough winter. So now I have something else to worry about.

It's a cold day, well below zero with the wind. I have a lot of catching up to do inside, so I need to stay off the computer and get to it. Really, I do.

  3. How beautiful that little one is. I hope he finds some company and doesn't need to rely upon you.

    Stay warm and cozy!

  5. Beautiful little deer! Love the shot of him reaching up to nibble that vine. It has indeed been a tough winter for those guys. Will check out your FB page!

  6. He was strutting around one of the paddocks yesterday afternoon. I watched him slip through the fence easily enough, so now I know he can get to the water tanks. I'll put some alfalfa out for him later. I don't know if the can eat horse feed, so I won't risk making him sick. I need to go out later for my needle appointment, so I'll pick up some corn.

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
