    That horse is beautiful! It's so weird, because honestly just moments ago while I stepped away from my computer, I thought about horses and was wondering if anyone considered themselves a horse person and what types of traits that would translate to, like perhaps freedom, stubbornness, and maybe being a little reserved. :)

    freedom, spirit, adventure, peserverance, and drive. Horses are gentle, loyal, fierce friends and the ultimate travel companions who are willing to go the distance with you.

    Not trying to be annoying, but a simple deer is sorta generic, as is the term human. There is quite a variety in deer based on where they live, and their characters and personalities are also unique. For example, some are more outgoing and some are more quickly to flee. So while they may stand for some of the same ideals across the world, this may or may not play a role in the depiction of spirit animals. I believe that is really dependent on the group of people depicting them and the deer population in that vicinity.

    In Oregon, we've got a lot of mule deer and elk, which are really large.

    Somewhere else where I lived, Virginia, has far more of these smaller more nimble white-tailed deer, much more prone to acrobatics :)

    There are even water deer and musk deer, distant relative, with tusks!

    Sorry, have too much critter knowledge (my profile pic even turns an attack vehicle into a critter), I'll go now...

    Ugh, my response was actually not as helpful, as I had planned, for the problem you presented. This is what I should of said :D Pretty much focusing on 2 topics to help you find an avatar of your animal.

    First, animal characteristics and representation vary from native group to native group (this is what I had hinted at). For example some stories have the coyote as a cunning hero, while others have the coyote as a mischievous villain. Most of the time, the villain characters won't be portrayed into an image for sale/trade. I don't think deers are portrayed as villains, so this part shouldn't matter as much.

    Secondly and most likely more importantly, depending on the native group again, some animals are represented as a whole. This means that neither a female or male role is given to that animal in storytelling and/or relating to your spirit animal. This may be the major reason you were/will be unable to find a doe. Sometimes deer are regarded as nature spirits with feminine qualities, but represented as stags. I know very little about the Zuni Indians, so this really depends on understanding more of their cultural representation of said animal.

    That should actually be helpful ;)... and if anyone else is looking into this subject, those are 2 factors to examine.

    Because I'm a dragon! And er...little is known about me? And I might actually be something else (like a Pachycephalosaurus!)?

    Ok, let's go with a living animal.

    [​IMG]

    Coyote
    - Sometimes found in small groups (generally family)
    - Often spends time alone
    - Plays with its food
    - Clever
    - Gets into trouble because it thinks it's more clever than it really is
    - Doesn't like to wear pants (seriously, have you ever tried to put pants on a coyote? not fun)

    Those duck/horse pictures got me :roflamo: :roflamo::roflamo:

    [​IMG]

    My grandma always used to call me a little lion. I am perfectly fine on my won, but I am very protective and try to help my pride. Strong by myself, but infinitely stronger as a group trying to accomplish the same task. I am generally quiet, but around friends I am open. I try to be courageous and strong. I generally just lay around the house, looking majestic all the time.

    A couple of my friends also like to compare me to an otter:

    It was nickname given to me a while ago by an USAF buddy. And it fits. I'm kind of large (6'7" 320lbs), ponderous, docile, lazy and like to graze!

    It's a fearsome guard-goose. Does stake-outs.
