Deer Blocks

We seem to have a small herd of deer that have discovered where we keep the deer block.  They have been going through a 50 pound block every 5 days!!

Here are a couple of the younger bucks checking things out.

We really enjoy it when the fawn's start coming around.  Don't you just love those spots!!

Finn's first Dog Days of Summer

Our little buddy Finn will be 6 months old in another week... he hasn't figured out summer yet!  What's with 100 degrees one day, next day 70 something with heavy rain...then back to 100 degrees again.  Poor guy..he is doing his best to escape the heat and bugs on "those" days..

 Finn's head and tail do not match his body... poor guy, one day everything WILL come together.

Finn--Post company and rain event....

Finn has really started to loose his puppy fur... he sure looks poka dot skin.  As he sheds we can see that there are a lot of black dots all over.... it will be interesting to see if they will show up in his adult fur.  It's hard to realize that Finn just turned five months old July 3....

Dad promised me a treat!!!!

We have had over 5" of rain this past week... the ground can't hold anymore.  Haying has been put on hold until...... who knows...These creeks should be almost dry this time of the year.

 My little car just barely made it through all this soft sand and gravel.  This is a wash out spot!!
 Tubing anyone?

A New Toy

We have a new toy.  We now have the ability to see what is going on even when we aren't looking.  The day shots seem to be pretty good.  I am going to have to work on the camera placement for the night shots.  Hopefully I will be able to collect some interesting shots from all over our place.

Finn....Going into the teen years....

It's hard to believe that we have had this little guy three months already!  April 1 was just yesterday.. Here he is as a 5 month old puppy, starting to loose his puppy fur.

I took these pictures early this morning before HOT and HUMID arrives.

There was a time when I thought Finn's legs would never grow into his long body...

All of a sudden he started growing and growing and growing...
His personality changes as he discovers new "stuff".  He is very strong willed right now (which is good in a guardian) but difficult to handle as the "master".  So far we have managed to all survive some of his more challenging moments.  He loves his goats and has learned how to play with them without hurting them. Whew!!
