the love of our deer family

Since moving into our new home one of the joys we have are seeing the deer on a daily basis, I have been feeding them and a few are friendly enough that they will allow me to hand feed themThis is Velvet i think that he is a older buck but one of his issues is that he still has velvet on his horns, when he first showed up here he was very sick, could hardly walk a few steps without coughing so hard, his eyes were also very weepy all green and almost closing his eyes, I started him on antiobiotics in his water and Lysine in his food, it took about a month but he is much better now,
 This is Scarface, i call her that because she has a scar down her face, she has two babies a little buck and a little girl i call Baby, her little buck got hit by a car and his back leg and hip was damaged, he dragged his leg, coyotes got him here on my property, it was so sad,
