A Gentle Soul

Isn't he cute?  Such a sweet face.  He's wondering if you can spare a scratch behind the ears or maybe you have a sliver of apple for him today.  

This little guy's name is Bubba and he makes an appearance at the local Christmas tree farm every year.  He  really is a sweetie but he has a bit of a reputation in our family.  Years ago, one of my children almost lost a finger that Bubba mistook for a carrot.  It really wasn't Bubba's fault but my son cannot be convinced.   He's forgiven...but not forgotten.  He now admires Bubba from afar.

I must have taken at least twenty pictures of Bubba through the years.  He is always happy to pose...he knows I pay in apples.
