Folks, you will not believe what happened! My deer friends have been around a lot lately. They’ve even been hanging around right outside my fenced-in yard! Momz and Dadz won’t let me play with the deer. You can see in the below photos how I’m being kept captive in the house while they are out there.
You might also know that I’m not allowed to play with our farm birds either. They say I get too rough with them. The guinea hens like me and I know they want to play with me! Often when I go outside in my yard, they come right up by the fence to see me. See the photo below, taken a while ago, where the guinea hens are teasing me!
Then Momz always makes me go in the house! She says it’s not me, but the crazy birds she doesn’t trust not to fly over the fence to see me. So anyway, the other evening those deer were right back by my yard again. Two of them were right there, and next thing we know, those crazy guinea hens are marching right up to the deer! On some occasions they have tried to chase the deer off, but this time they were just hanging out with them.
I call “No fair”!! I can’t play with the deer, I can’t play with the guinea hens, but the deer and the guinea hens are allowed to play together? How does that seem right?? Guess what else? There are no photos of this event. While Momz says she just didn’t want to scare the deer away, I think she just didn’t want me to have proof of how mean she and the Dadz are! What do you think, readers, who is in the right here?
Anyway, Momz says I also have to share some nice nature photos she took. This is what it looks like around here now, although the weather has been a bit warmer so some of the snow is melting.
