Home, Home on the Range

Yep, I know this is a terrible photo, but I'm just so excited I had to share.  Be grateful I'm sparing you the shaky video, which is even worse.  We've had antelope all around us, but this is the first one I've seen on our property.  It's a nice big buck.  I will be singing "Home, home on the range..." for days.  Poor David.

I could see right off, that was an antelope! Lucky you! They are so beautiful!

That's exciting, all right! Maybe now, there will be more. I wonder how the horses will react, if they start coming closer? Probably the same way they do to the deer around here. If they're out in the pasture and they see a deer, it's no big deal. But, if they're under saddle and they see one, you end up in the next county in nothing flat. Sigh.

I saw my first antelope this spring and it was super exciting! I can't believe you got a photo - how amazing :D

You are fortunate. We would have to drive about 6 hours south to see any.

Lucky you!
They are so beautiful to see, but I have only seen them from afar... out on the prairie.

I love antelope! None here in my area, sad to say! Hopefully you get more "lopes" on your property!!!
