"Powder!"
 Thank you to my niece "Tracy" and her friends  for sharing this with us.


Sometimes, if we are lucky, we get to witness lifes miracles and special oddities. I regret that I only saw the photo and was not "privy" to seeing this beautiful creature. Hope you enjoy seeing such rare photos and story. AND I truly would like to thank you both for making sure he lives a full/natural life, by rehabilitating him.


 A very eventful day around here... once in many lifetimes experience. Saw this lil' feller run out in  front of a car, thought it was a lost baby goat. Stopped to get it, and it was a real Albino Whitetail Deer. Just hours old, but doing fine. No Momma deer around. Another car nearly hit it in front of Mark... 

Well, he is THE neatest thing any of us ever saw. And such a 'freak of nature', that only 1 in more than a million are even born. He took his bottle of food, followed us around the house, doing great. So, we called the Zoo & Fossil Rim, who were both interested, but we're going to send him to a rehab farm. Maybe he will make it in captivity somewhere and be appreciated. So rare.... sure wanted to keep him though. But, not the thing to do. Here are a couple of pix to show ya. He was snow white, pink eyes, ears, nose and hooves. Kids called him POWDER. He was SO small. That is my shoe lying beside him... ..how cool is that??






Pass this around, a lot of folks have never and will probably never see even another picture of an Albino deer fawn......
