and take a break.
Exercise class at Rondeau can be vigorous.

This white tailed deer was browsing the lowest branches of a willow tree in our yard. It stretched as far as it could to get hold of a thin hanging branch and eventually tore a piece off.
We had 7 deer in the yard this afternoon.
Scientific stuff
Odocoileus virginianus
Its diet consists mostly of green plants, nuts, and in the winter, wood vegetation.
The white-tailed deer can make vertical leaps of over two and a half metres and horizontal leaps of nine metres — that’s almost as long as a school bus.
