Piebald Deer

 

Piebald deer, a genetic variation that occurs in less than 1 percent of the whitetail population, have  white bodies with brown spots, short legs and an arching spine.

We saw one of these last night on our way home from church.  It was very exciting.  I have never seen one before.  The one we saw had a little more brown on it in the front and it was a buck.  It was down close to the road so we got a really good look at it.  Amazing!  I am not sure what the girls and I will be working on today.  I want to check the tomatoes and see if any more are ready and see how close the grapes are to being ready.  If no garden harvest is ready, I guess we’ll just do normal housework.  I hope you all have a great day. God bless.
