Merry Christmas
December 21, 2010
Remember this date -- it is my first mistake all year.
The lighting was very different than the camera shows.
Until I began editing the video I thought it was Albert, then I discovered it was Button.  Even I am not perfect.

GENUINE DEER STONES

GENUINE DEER STONES

WHAT IS A DEER STONE?

Until December 21, 2010 I had no idea what to call them and then I decided they were GENUINE DEER STONES.

Deer have the same digestive system as any bovine, multi-chamber stomachs. This allows them to digest a portion of what they eat and save
the rest as cud to regurgitate and eat at a later time.  Hence the term
"CHEW THEIR CUD".

Each day for several months I have found stones in the feed bowls in amounts of 1,2,3 or as many as 5.  What the deer do is pick up a stone and hold it between their cheek and jaw/teeth and the rotation motion of chewing aided by the stone grinds their food for digestion.

The deer deposit these stones, in the bowls and find new ones.  I guess it
is like tooth brushes - they wear out and you buy a new one,
it's a hygene thing.

This has to be fact -- or they are just leaving me the stones as a tip.
