A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

Where the deer and the antelope play...
Well okay, just the deer so far. We have seen lots of deer on our property, usually though it is their back end as they are taking off into the bush because of our maniacal dog, barking her head off or if she is off leash, chasing them.
On Sunday morning, I looked out the window and this little darling was walking around our garden fence...no doubt figuring out how to get in. She stayed for a while, looking up at the window at us every few minutes.
She must have come up the driveway, because maniac dog was on the front of the house and didn't hear her. I am amazed at just how long their legs are compared to their bodies. Eventually, Farlee, bless his heart decided to be a guard dog for a change and did his best to chase her off. She easily and gracefully leapt off into the bushes....such a beautiful thing to watch. I know, I know...I probably wouldn't be so happy if she had actually made it into my garden, but for now I am just enjoying their harmless visits.
