A Horse, Robins, and Two Deer.

Today I saw this horse hitched to a post at the Fort Valley Fire Department. He's waiting for a Mennonite family who came to the outdoor crafts sale in a horse-drawn buggy.

American Robins have been regular visitors to our yard. I'll start feeding the other birds soon. I'm just waiting for the bears to settle down for their winter naps so the feeders don't draw them in. I've had feeders destroyed by a bear more than once.

The deer were up in Shenandoah National Park. For a moment they were eating in unison.


  1. Your photos are really nice. I especially like the horse, waiting for his owners. We've been searching for squirrel-proof feeders, I can't even imagine needing bear-proof ones!

  2. Hello,
    Pretty horse and I love the deer! I have been seeing more robins, they are lovely. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a great new week! PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

  3. ...the horse looked like it belonged to an Amish or Mennonite.

  4. oh no on those bears, i'm glad i do not have to think about that!! that's a beautiful horse, and nice to hear there was a craft show, all of ours, indoor or out, have been cancelled.

    awesome captures of the robins, i have been seeing them year round lately!!

    the deer are so pretty, i love when they turn this color!!!

  5. Beautiful!
    Have a blessed day!

  6. For some reason we have no birds outside (though we aren't supposed to feed them for the same reason you mentioned - bears). And the squirrels have also disappeared. So thanks for sharing your robins, deer and the patient horse.

  7. I wonder if the horse was expecting carrots out of you.
