    Do YOU think deer like...the color Purple?

  • #2
    I can not say whether a deer would appreciate the colour purple but I do know of an interesting connection between the colour and the creature. Legend has it, that the Royal's choice of the colour purple as a Regal symbol is linked to a famous stag who roamed the English forest in the time of Henry of Navarre . History tells us that Henry was a rogue who loved the ladies. On one of his escapades at a monastery he glanced from a window and spotted a huge stag at the edge of the forest. Snatching up the only article of clothing at hand, which happened to be the lady in questions cape, he dashed from the place stark naked but for the cape and his bow and arrow in hand. Henry downed the stag with the long bow, gutted the animal and returned to the monastery with the buck on his shoulder and a Regal Purple cape around his person. Since that day the colour Purple has been linked to the great deer and to the Royals.
    There are tall tales and there are buck tails!
