I've had these laying about my desktop for a couple of weeks...









Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

It looks like you need to get your grooming brush out there while they eat from their dish.

some of the close ups show interesting details like possible healed wounds on legs

I learned something about elk and deer last weekend.  I had been wondering why so many had sores on their coats.  I was out driving very early, maybe 6AM and a herd of elk crossed the road in front of me. On either side of the road was barbed wire fence.  Most jumped over, but two tried to go through rather than over, and got caught up badly on the barbs. Both injured themselves pulling free. The sores are from getting caught in barbed wire, which must happen quite often.
