Deer Friends

Here are the deer that live in the woods behind and beside our house.
Suzie: the first deer that I saw at our new house

Such a "cutie"

Running across our yard

Blossom: Suzie's mother

Mother and Daughter

Whispering Spirit(known as Kingly) 

He's the king of the forest

Buckley: Kingly's son

Buckley and Kingly

So Majestic!

Rocky: Kingly's daughter, Buckley's sister, and Suzie's best friend.  She has very keen eyes and can tell when any danger is about.  She is very alert.  
One time I saw her looking towards the woods, and about 2 minutes later, some deer came out of the woods. This happened several more times.  So whenever I saw her looking towards the woods, I knew that there would be some more deer coming.  Now that's proof that I'm not just making this up.

 Rocky is probably one of my favorite deer

 Strolling in the prairie

Alertness   :)

 Suzie, Blossom, and Rocky.  (Notice how Rocky is being alert and keeping watch)

Dazzler: She stays back and never comes to far from the woods.  That is her normal feeding spot.

Shooting Star: She's always the earliest one awake 

I love how she's surrounded by the morning mist

 Fern: She always hides in the bushes

Trigger: He is married to Dazzler.  Unfortunately he died in Death Canyon; a ravine in the woods.

Velvet: Her skin is the most well kept

Rain Dancer: She's out in the rain a lot.  That's how she got her name.

"Who's that?"

So gorgeous

 Trigger, Velvet, and Rain Dancer

Fire-Foot: Fire- Foot is the fastest of all the deer.  She died about a year ago.  :(

Buckley, Rocky, Blossom, Suzie, following Kingly

Here's a video of some deer playing in the field behind our house
These pictures (and video) were taken about two years ago.  I'll post some more picture later of the updates from the past few years.

Which deer is/are your favorite?

Psalm 18:33
"He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on high places."

Psalm 42:1
"As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God."


  1. Ooo, they're all so beautiful. It's pretty hard to chose favorites!
    I guess I'll say Whispering Spirit, Rocky Dazzler, Shooting Star, Trigger and Rain Dancer.
    Did you name them all?

    1. S.F. Yes, I did name all of them. My favorite deer are Rocky and Suzie. I have other animals that live around our house, such as three stray cats. Maybe I'll post about the other animals some time? Thanks for commenting! You're such a faithful follower:)

    2. Yes, a post about the other animals would be great! You and Lily always pick scriptures that go so well with the post;)
