Jon Halsey: Deer have run of Knifley place, too, almost . . .

Click on headline for introductory item with photos

The deer at Knifley - at least at Jon Halsey's place, know they have friends at the Halsey Place. He sends the accompanying album with this note in response to the paired photos, almost like pets. He writes, in response to seeing paired photos linked from: Scenic Adair County: Deer II, bounding away, which included to remark that the Greenbriar Ridge deer "seemed almost like pets" -
Well not quite "...like pets."

And sends delightful photos of tame deer at his place, as comfortably at home as the house cats and dogs he and Mrs. Halsey pamper.

Deer at Halseys IV - Bad table manners firmly corrected



2017-08-13 - Knifley, KY - Photo by Jon Halsey.
Out of order behavior leads to ignominious expulsion from The Garden, being led by the ear, though it was an apple which tempted the miscreant yearling.
