A couple young bucks

Showed up in the front yard tonight. We were lounging around on the couch, supposedly watching TV. However the sheep were up to their usual antics playing on the manure pile (yes kids - sheep running over top of their own poo over and over again is much more entertaining than summertime TV programming), when all of a sudden a pair of antlers wandered past the front door.

By the time I got my act together, grabbed the camera, pryed our squeaky door open in the least squeaky manner possible this was the shot I got - buck butts. Travis did his part by convincing the dogs that they didn't need to protect us from intruders. People can pull into our yard with big trucks, trailers, and a moving crew and the dogs don't say boo - a couple of deer and look out! I feel so safe at night...

Any way, they settled down and did some primping in the yard before disappearing into the trees.

I can only assume they headed down the ditch, cruising for chicks, telling crude jokes, making fun of moose - it's what young bucks do.
