we live on the outskirts of the village with forests behind our house, so we see deer pass by very often, especially in the winter when they scavenge the village for food. my husband built this manger 2 yrs ago so Ji could watch the deer from close up and it's a wonderful sight!
lately they don't seem to care for the hay too much, since our neighbor's cat has started sleeping on it (i often see him crawling out in the morning, stretching after a good night's sleep) but they do love the grains we toss under the manger for them :).
p.s. the photos were taken from our dining room window!
