Default Piebald Whitetail Deer....

This is cute as all hell.... Too cute to not share...
I have never seen a piebald whitetail deer in the wild... In my entire life so far, I have seen two true albino deer... One small buck and a doe, both in the Black Hills of SD.....

It is interesting.... If you do a Google of piebald deer there will be a lot of info and pictures of different variations...

Anyone seen any where you live ??
Pictures ?? Stories ?? Thoughts ??
Enjoy

I've seen one or two piebald deer and one that was all white, but not an Albino since the nose, eyes and hooves were normally pigmented

Yes... It makes sense an all white animal, with normal eye, nose, hoof color would be one extreme end of the piebald spectrum I suspect... Again the two I have seen were true albino....

Deer here will go through a phase of mouse grey/brown coloration that if you haven't seen it before, you would think there was something wrong with them... I don't know if there is a name/word for this, other than some horses kinda like this are called grulla....

Take care...

They often turn more grey during the Winter and are more reddish/brown in Summer

The first one I ever killed with a bow was a very light grey, with short spike antlers still in velvet, which is something you almost never see around here

I've never seen a deer like the one in the article, but I have seen one that was marked half like a paint horse and half like a normal deer.. I had to do a double take and ask hubby if he saw it too. I thought it was crazy, but I guess anything is possible.
