Fawn Update

Remember our baby orphan fawn?  This photo was taken shortly after its mother was shot by our neighbor. 

We wanted to keep it on our property out of harm's way to help it through its first winter so we put out a little alfalfa occasionally for it..










This photo was taken 2 days ago and you can see how it has grown.... Healthy and not a rib in site...good sign.

After a little alfalfa it comes to snack on sunflower seeds under the feeder next to the house.  Morris watches and doesn't make a peep.  Morris is trying to keep one eye on the fawn and one eye on me...
Now that spring is near we will stop the supplemental feeding gradually and let nature take its course.

Nice to see the fawn made it through the winter so far. Now if the neighbour just stays away....
I love Morris - he is just far too cute.
