The nearsighted fawn

First of all, this clearing/meadow/back yard tewtelly looks like a Ranger Rick poster, like there should be a caption at the bottom that says "Working Together!" on it. The kind of poster on the wall in third grade. Radical!


Apparently, this fawn wandered out to make the scene even better. Have you ever seen a smaller fawn? Didn't thiiiink so! [singsong]


You know that horse is all "git out the way" and the fawn is all "I shall mimic your grazing pattern!"


I think I'm cruisin' for a C.O. coma...Amy M., call the DOCTAH!

Bambi-ette is all like, "Man, I am hangin' with these dudes, they're like the Shaqs of the deer world!"

Geez louise, it's not even as big as that horse's head!!!

where's mom?

I swear... I always know EXACTLY what voice you mean for the little critters, even when you don't specify. "Git... out the way", all doleful and hickish horse.

And "I shall mimic your grazing pattern!" is clearly Ralph Wiggum's voice.

and i heart ranger rick.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 11:46 AM

best. cuteroverload picture. ever.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 11:46 AM

where's mom indeed? Bambi looks like s/he went up to the horses because s/he confused them for mom.

aww!!! it's so teeny next to the big horses XDDD

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 11:48 AM

Aw, the last pic it looks like horseh is being very motherly and protective of lil Bambeh. Like, you stick with me, babe, with your knobbely knees.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 11:51 AM

GAAAAH so cute, my tummy fell outta my office chair.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:00 PM

Oh this so made up for the hamporn. I feel clean again.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:02 PM

I've seen this series before and the fawn's mom is just offscreen. If I remember it correctly, the fawn and mom grazed with the horses everyday. No one is lost and no fawns were harmed in the making of these photogs.

Just TOO sweet though.

my heart just disploded.

Hi, ariel--nice to see you again!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:04 PM

You wanna know where Mom's at?!

She's over there in those trees having a coronary!!! She's trying to figure out how in the WORLD she's gonna get her kid back with those huge horses standing around!!! Sheepers...

Makes me all teary-eyed looking at them...

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:05 PM

i'm melting......

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:08 PM

So very teeny tiny!

[deep breath, pause to avert coma]


Wow. I have now COverloaded. I seriously think this is the cutest thing ever posted. I'm going to need that doctor, too.

A thinker
 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:17 PM

Thanks, Kris. I was wondering what happened to the doe; i feared the little dude was orphaned. I'm glad he's just enjoying haning out with the cool crowd!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:19 PM

Since this is a girl horse, I think she's thinking: "Dang, I wisht mine came out this small. That wouldn't hardly be any work at all."

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:21 PM

*joins the chorus*
Such a wunnerfuls wittle bebe.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:25 PM

Does anyone else see the big white rabbit in in the bushes in the background? Or shall I just call him Harvey?

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:31 PM

Okay, that did it...I'm cute overloaded. My head is swelling, it's rolling from side to side, it tumbled onto the floor!

What a precious little baby and what nice whinnies! Great pics!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:44 PM

We sure can see the spot pattern on that baby! Is it a boy or girl, AmyH???
Just joshin' wid ya!!!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:45 PM

Ceebs - Um, I think that's a rock...Either that or it's a REALLY big rabbit...

*eyes Ceebs carefully*

*big grin*

"I've seen this series before and the fawn's mom is just offscreen. If I remember it correctly, the fawn and mom grazed with the horses everyday. No one is lost and no fawns were harmed in the making of these photogs."

Stone rolled off my heart; I thought the little one had lost his momma.

Ah cuteness!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:51 PM


I hope it goes back to it's mommy soon! She's probably kind of confused by the situation! Like she looks everywhere for her kid, only to find him/her with the horses next door.

"I don't know why you insist on hanging out with those HORSES! They're just TROUBLE! Do you hear me? Don't you EVER wander out of my sight again!"

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 12:54 PM

hidey-ho, jaypo!
i also made an appearance as the siren on pirate day.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 01:01 PM

awww...this looks just like my grandparents' ranch in Texas. sigh...

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 01:11 PM

Glau-fawna - a debilitating eye condition found in bebeh fawns; symptoms include a specific type of near-sightedness leading to examples of inter-species grazing.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 01:25 PM

So adorable! Thank you to Kris for reassuring us about mommy deer, now I can enjoy the cuteness 100 percent!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 01:25 PM

Could your commentary play-by-play on these pictures be ANY funnier, madam? I think we need to get together for BLTs and snarky conversation. Love you!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 01:28 PM

...is all "I shall mimic your grazing pattern!"

sounds like something Jack Black would say.
were he a fawn.
mighty unlikely, methinks.

Yup, that looks like Texas Hill Country, right down to the live oak and elm trees in the background. Gorgeous equines, too!

Man, I gotta go sponge my heart out of my sandals now... *grin*

AH! Awww, frank you for posting some ponies, Meg! That's tewtally what I needed today. Someone in one of my online equine groups posted this series a while back. I'd almost forgotten about it! EEE!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 01:41 PM

Now that you mention it, it reminds me of my uncle's (former) ranch near Houston. Pecan trees & horses they had. Only time I ever saw an armadillo (well, a live one) while I was living in TX.

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 02:06 PM

That is one cute and TINY fawn! http://www.animalcameras.com

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 02:19 PM

Teeeeny fawn, or really big ponies?


 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 02:24 PM

So sweeeeeeeeet!!! Itty bitty fawn and really dang big horses!
Total overload!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 02:51 PM

I'm not usually one to scream the PS word... but soemthing about the proportions here looks off. I'm around horses every day; we often see deer and their fawns grazing nearby. Something in that last shot isn't right.. I'm just saying, is all. But hey, if it makes you go awwwww, no harm. (*Runs away to escape the torches and pitchforks).

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 02:56 PM

Teeeeny tiny fawn and horsies all "whatever"! Eeee!

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 03:15 PM

what else can I say?

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 03:38 PM

I'll put in another vote for gotta-be-the-Hill-Countreeee.

*Is homesick*

 |  Sep 25, 2006 at 03:42 PM

Sounds good to me, mariser!
Those bebes are sooo tiny!
