Baby Deer Born

Spotted Baby Deer

In June we had a family reunion at the farm and everyone got a nice surprise! A very large doe came by to eat when she suddenly jumped into the long grass at the side of the house and gave birth to twins!

It was difficult to see, but as we were watching the doe in the grass, suddenly a dark head popped up and looked around and dove back down again. Because it was so hard to see, trying to keep the family inside the house away from the deer was a pain! The family finally slid off onto the back of the property to hide out.

6 weeks later we had the pleasure of a visit from mom and the two spotted babies. They love this area because we have apple, pear and plum trees. We are fine with sharing the bad fruit that lands under the trees. Less clean up for us.
