The word has spread to all corners of the farm. Corn! "That human that has those two horses and those silly cats, feed the deer corn...lets get some too!" Funny, they all take turns at their favorite corn pile. There is an exception, a fat and furry critter would like to hog it all, but usually the deer will win out and the small critters must wait their turn.
Beautiful Brownie is usually the first along with her family.But the birds beat her to it since they are so close.
Brownie likes a variety in the summer.
Little Cocoa shares some kernels with Brave One.
Wow, what is a red squirrel doing out this late? That is a big squirrel!!
Whoops! That is nooo squirrel! It is baby time! The fox only shows up this close when she has babies. Last year, she was within 10 feet of Callie which drove Jessie crazy! The foxes usually leave the cats alone. Guess they have an understanding.
"That human is gettting too close!"
Now look who arrived! No kidding, this raccoon made its appearance within minutes after the fox scurried away.
Sorry for the blurry pic, but it was getting dark. This brave coon tried to nip some of the young deer's ankles. Eventually Brownie chased it away.
And then of course the big boys, Bossy' Boy and Twin, chase everyone away.
This is Little Bear's 'favorite television show'... If she could, she would eat every single visitor at that corn pile! Thank you electronic shock collar!
The last one to take a nibble is my resident bunny. Good bunny for hiding. One night, bunny and raccoon were within a few feet of eachother eating a late dinner! That night was the first time the raccoon let me see it! Now it has become brave and comes out at dusk...
