Barnyard deer

Old McDonald had a farm. EE--I--EE--I--O. And on his farm he had some deer. EE--I--EE--I--O.

Yesterday's photo showed three small deer who were hanging out in the corral with the chickens. Here is a closer view of one of them. The ranchers seemed to treat the deer just like domesticated animals. The deer were smaller than North American deer.

We have photos of the Villa Balbianello on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. It is a delightful Villa that straddles the tip of a peninsula in Lake Como, Italy.

These definitely small deer and they seem to be almost domesticated. I hope that you were able to get close to them.

The deer look right at home here. Wonder how tame they are, can you get close to them?

Here the deer are so plentiful, they're almost like pets! They come into yards and clear out shrubbery like machines!

Cute little guys! The chickens are almost as big as they are.

Pretty little critters!

Had to come back to comment on your comment to my post today. You were very diplomatic in the use of the word "fervent" rather than "rabid fan!"

What a beautiful series of photos. Love these rural images of well-cared for young animals.
