Oh Deer!

"Mama, what's this?"

"It's a boat hitch, deerest. People attach them to their trucks and drive around and around. When they're tired of driving they bring them home and put them back in the carport."

"Yikes, what's that, Mama?"

"Oh, darling, that's a people. She comes out with that thing stuck to her face all the time when your older brothers and I hang out in the yard. She stands very still so I guess we don't frighten her much."

"One more mouthful of this luscious grass and we need to move on, kids."

"I think she's getting too close now. We don't want to panic her...we're outta here."

Mama trots to the fence, a 4 foot high field fence, and the twins follow. She boinks over the fence. They're separated.

The twins are only 6-8 weeks old so they certainly can't jump a fence. What is Mama thinking?

Hubby has circled around and opened the front gate. Mama comes back into the front yard and the twins see her. "Hey, there's Mama!!!"

It's a happy reunion. Mama promises she won't jump fences 'til she's taught the little ones how to follow.

That makes the peoples happy too.

Love the ingenious way you got the boat to fit into the carport. You'll probably have way more antelope in your NM yard than deer. They don't boing over the fence - they crawl under. Quite amazing really.

Great shots. How wonderful to walk out into your yard to watch the little family checking out your place. You do need to have that "thing" removed from your face.

I'm happy momma and babies were reunited! Great pictures. They're so sweet-unless they're eating the flowers!
