Bambi Bambi everywhere..
After months of sparse foraging, (the bushes were lost in at least 2 feet of snow for months)little green haze is spreading on the ground, like puzzle pcs working on solving its way to the center. One day it's brown and winter..the next, spring is starting to claim victories. No blooms yet..but soon. So for now the deer are in a thanksgiving prayer session, praising God with their noses to the ground, jaws moving like metronomes! Let the buffet begin! LIFE IS GOOD.
Deer are one of the little everyday pleasures of living in Colorado. A simple gift to see the majesty of these bucks.
Babies will be here soon, all spotted and wobbly.
I do not get hunters. Every time I see a fawn, or doe or buck I pause. A little moment of magic and beauty and grace. Why would you want to kill that?? To make jerky??
And I don't care if they eat my bushes(which they have) or eat my Halloween hand grown pumpkins (yep, those too.) I am blessed by them everyday. If a little foliage is the price I must pay..so be it..
If I had a cell phone I could click a pic..but I don't own one..I must try to remember my camera..
Spring is coming...I galloped Roux outside today. It felt so good. It's been a loooooog winter. But here in Colorado, we aren't in the clear for "no more snow" until memorial day. You think I jest..but oh no..It's been known to happen.
So while it's warm(70 degrees today!!!hehehe giddy giggles)...I'll be riding into the sunset!
Don't worry though, I'll always be back by dinner.
