We have a small little herd of antelope that hang out in the fields behind our house. We see them almost every day - usually in pairs. Today I looked out the window and saw this lonely antelope in our backyard. I have never seen them come that close to our house. If you look in the bottom right of the picture, those teepee things is where our garden is going to be - so he was right there, very close. Sort of exciting.

Later when we were outside doing some yard work. Maddie spotted a second antelope. I knew this one was a different one than the first because it had horns. We sat and watched it for a while. It even made an antelope noise for us. Then Daisy spotted it and that was then end of that. She chased it for a minute. It ran off and joined the first antelope which was in the back field - back where we usually see them.

What a great place to live. When we were in Moscow, we had elk in the hills behind our house.
