No More "Mama's Boy"!

Yesterday I was walking through my south pasture and came across some pretty rough looking characters.....

I think they're the twin fawns who graced our farm last spring and summer, hugging their mama's side and growing like weeds. We had a hard winter for western Washington and I'm glad to see them back, safe and sound. Well....they were a little rough around the edges.

Harsh, wiry winter coats are coming off with a vengeance providing nesting material for the barn swallows. No worries 'bout the ribbiness....there's plenty of grass and young shoots to browse.

Soon Mama will leave these little guys behind to fend for themselves. If they were good students they'll have all the skills they need to "make it" in a big buck's world.

Mama looks like she'll be pretty busy teaching another little one pretty soon...and those rough looking characters in the pasture won't be "Mama's Boys" anymore.

How wonderful to have these guys "just out the door". I love the photos!
