These sweet guys are my new buddies. Weve been hanging out in the yard together for the past two weeks. This day, one of them (the first one to hang around) came and ate about 4 feet away from me for about 10 minutes. It was such an amazing thing. She has been hanging around our house for a while, actually a few years I think. She likes to play with Violet along the fence in the backyard. The last few weeks she has decided she is not afraid of us much at all. I'm working my up to getting her to eat out of my hand... I think she is so beautiful.
Deer has always been a part of my animal medicine that shows up. I have always felt a fondness to them, a connection in spirit. This past week it has shown up very heavily. From these beautiful guys befriending us, to more amazing encounters. On the way home from town the other day we came across two magestic Fallow deer, which I had never seen in person before. I was so taken by their presence and beauty. The picture below is this beautiful creature. Then one day when I was working out on my eliptical, looking out the window, I spotted two baby deer frolicking in the field together! And then the evening after seeing the Fallow deer, we heard Violet barking in the backyard and went outside to see what she was barking at, and there was a baby deer curled up next to our fence. I got to see it within a foot close, and its big beautiful blue eyes with long eyelashes and little spots all over. It was the sweetest split moment ever. Before I was able to take a photo it got up and ran off, but I will never forget that moment. So sweet and tender and full of magic and charm. I can't stop thinking about it. I wanted to cuddle it so bad, ha ha!
