Mogshade Hill in the Sun


Well finally we have some sun! We walked at Mogshade Hill, a lot of the time we were squelching through mud and the pond is full to overflowing which is very unusual for this time of year. As we walked up the hill we saw what we thought were ponies on the path, but a closer look and we realised they were deer. One of them was a white doe, not an albino, just a deer with a very pale coat. It is a recessive gene and you don't see many white ones, her fawn had the normal colouring. She really stood out from the background and even though they quickly skipped away we could still see her in the distance. Maybe the white deer were the original unicorns..who knows!
