The change comes on slowly. For the adults the reddish summer hair begins to thin revealing the new soft velvety undercoat. The adult doe pictured here has shed nearly all of her summer coat with the exception of that on her head and legs. In the coming weeks the now short soft hair covering her body will grow into the long insulating coat she will need to survive winter's cold.
The alert fawn is also showing the signs of change as its brilliant spots are fading away.
