A Surprise in the Field
This morning when I was out moving sprinklers, Buck found something in the field that he kept sniffing and going back to. I went over to check it out and found a new baby fawn. It was unbelievably small, smaller than Brother, the cat that was out there with me. I got the kids, and they came out and loved it. While we were looking at the fawn, Buck found a second one about 20 feet away. The grass wasn't even that tall, and you almost had to stumble over them to see them. They are so well camouflaged! Tori wants a pet fawn now. After swimming, we went out to see if they were still there, but mom had come back and moved them. Maybe we'll find them again tomorrow!

How neat for you and the kids. We haven't seen any new fawns yet, but are pretty sure we have some.
