Red stag roaring

Just a quick snap to let you know what's happening around here...

Poor chap! He looks glazed and exhausted and as if he has a helluva sore throat. I bet he'll be so relieved when it's all over.

Kia ora Pete,
RR says it all. Except some of us out here bill be relieved when it is all over as well :) - think I will wait another few weeks yet, and I suspect this long Easter weekend the hills will be crawling with hunters and roaring stags.

That's quite a rack.

RR, that's pretty much it. A slave to his hormones. Might there be a lesson there?

Robb, kia ora e hoa. As I left yesterday for a bike ride I met some young guys in a ute at the gate — they were practising roaring at the stags. They seemed embarrassed to be caught red-handed, but they were doing no harm. I felt a bit sorry for them; it wasn't as if I was about to chew them out, and I can't help thinking they had a touch of the old testosterone poisoning too. ;^)

Patricia, yes indeed. I'm sure the hinds have remarked on it ;^)
