Winkin' is Dead

I'm sad to report that my baby fawn was hit by a car about 100 yards from my driveway.

I know there may be many other fawns roaming around here, and it may not actually have been Winkin' (as I named her). But it sure felt like Winkin' in my heart when I saw that little body laying in the road. Since I couldn't tell the fawns apart anyway I will never know.

I really have to stop naming these deer. Every time I do they get me on the inside.

Rest well, little Winkin'. I'm sorry your time was so short on this good Earth.


  1. I'm feeling sad with ya...sorry it happened and that you saw it. I know the deer population is a problem anymore, but little ones and their moms shouldn't have these fates....

  2. I'm so sorry to hear what happened to Winkin'. I feel sad everytime I see a deer lying on the side of the road. It just all seems so wrong somehow. They are such gentle creatures.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about Winkin'. I can certainly understand your attachment--I've become very fond of the baby birds I've been watching grow up around here.

  4. I'm sorry about Winkin'. Poor thing.
