Deer in the Pasture

Friends in NJ own and live on a 17-acre farm. During our visit, these deer also paid a visit.
Several does and a group of fawns were grazing in one of the horse pastures; we counted 11-12 there.

We watched for awhile, but soon, it was time for us and the deer to leave.

These are some great photos. We have a herd of deer in the country north of town. They are not hunted so they just keep growing in numbers. During the winter they move from snow covered fields to other field looking of for food. We have to stop the car on the road and let them past just like sheep.

Hi Beatrice...The deer are gorgeous ...wonderful animals..and those spotted fawns Ooooh!!

The Aftermath: I am just getting to see some of the destruction on facebook and blog of the things that we would never know from TV new!!
This morning there was a video of the Kangamangus Highway in New Hampshire..the most scenic route in New England with three quarter of the highway total washed away ...and these scenes in N.J just awful ..these places aren't used to the direction this hurricane took!!

Frday Funnies.....HAhahahaha!! that's all I have to say about that!!!

It's really pretty there! Our Whitetail population is non-existent this year. A wave of "Blue Tongue" is going through and decimating them. Very sad.

Lovely to be able to just sit and watch for a while!

THANKS Tammy, Sandra, Daisy, Lois, Larry, Grace, Judy, Mona and Elaine.

Seeing this herd in the pasture was wonderful, but they tend to be a nuisance according to our friends. WHY? The deer eat the grass intended for their horses.

We have a wooded area directly behind our home and have never seen a single deer.

I can hardly believe how many deer are showing up on blogs this fall.
