Sunday Stroll: Oh Dear

Why do you get up so early
I often hear them say
Until I show what early has to say
Come out and join us at play.












This guy is minus a rear leg, a stump only remains where he may have chewed off his injured leg. He hobbled going slow, but took off running at a graceful gait.
He also has an irregular rack, only two on one side and four on the other.
Which made me laugh
When I noticed this guy
Tagging along, possibly a son.


Visit Marcie the originator of Sunday Strolls. Her Quiet Country House in Michigan is always a treat to visit. This week she is traveling in the southeastern states and I am excited to see what she has to share.

  1. OK I didn't know deer could survive with injuries like that. You get way closer than I ever could the few years I took up bow hunting (unsuccessfully. :)

  2. Pretty photos. Looks like you had a peaceful stroll. We rescued a cat several months ago who only has 3 legs. He hops like a bunny to walk but when he runs, you would never know he's missing a leg. You mentioned my trip to Germany. My father worked for Atlanta's Bus Co. for 44 years. Germany was manufacturing the buses at that time and his official reason for the trip was to check on the bus progress. When we got there, they had not even started on the buses! It was a beautiful and unique Christmas for my parents and me! Another funny thing, the bus co. provided us with our own bus, a deluxe model, and a driver to tour all the hot spots. Each time the bus stopped, folks gathered around expecting to see a movie star or pop group!!! lol Instead 3 Southern sounding folks from Georgia!

  4. Lovely stroll amongst the deer. One has to wonder about the injuries. I'm glad to see he has survived.

  5. Is there a wildlife refuge nearby? Is that how you see so many deer? Or is it just because you get up early? :) I do feel for the buck with the missing leg. Life can be hard enough for them when they have four good legs.

  6. I am surprised that buck continued on with a lost leg. That is quite an injury.

  10. Nice to look at but I'm glad there aren't any around here, well, there are deer around here just not on my side of town surrounded by agricultural fields. closer to the river there are deer. my yard would be a buffet.

  11. It's unusual for a three legged deer to survive in the wild isn't it? And chewing off a leg....can't be fun.

  14. Beautiful photos. We have a large group of deer near our lake. I walked outside last night to go upstairs (we have to go outside to get upstairs) and a doe was not four feet from the stairs. She didn't move and I started talking. Tried to make a deal. "Don't eat my shrimp plants and you can live in my yard." Not quite certain what she decided, but she did seem to like the quiet tone in my voice.
    Beautiful post. Enjoyed it.
