Being unfamiliar with the life cycle of deer and other members of their close relations, I was somewhat confused when some of my friends said they were going to the mountains to get some “sheds”. After admitting I had no idea what they were talking about, they enlightened me by explaining most of the animals with antlers, “shed” them each year and grew bigger ones the next year. This was some relief to me as I was picturing in my head a group of people carrying garden type sheds off the mountain. Many of the homes and barns are decorated with these sheds; I was particularly taken with the group of antlers artistically interwoven into an old steel wheel at a ranch location.
