This evening when we took our walk down the driveway . . I know . . it’s 100 degrees at 8:30 but Addie has way too much energy so we take a walk in the evenings. Vince and I take a leisurely pace and Addie usually runs circles around us or runs to the gate, and back to us and the back to the gate again.
We’ve seen deer in the driveway when we ride down to get the mail almost every day but we haven’t seen any for the last two days. I was telling Vince that we only saw the little fawn once or twice and haven’t seen him again and about that time, I looked up, and there it was.
Addie was back behind us and I was motioning for her to hurry up and she was yelling “WHY?” and she came running and that little fawn never budged. It looked like it was thinking . . a child I might could play with.
Vince went back and got water in a big bladder and took a tub up there and put fresh water out for them. I’m sure they’re pretty parched right now as water isn’t easy to find. We have a few tubs around for the birds but mostly not that far up towards the highway.
If I had my way, that little fawn would be farther away from the highway but mama deer doesn’t ask for my advice!
