THE BLACK-HOOFED DANCER


Indigenous to Washington. The trademark black hoofs of this gentle little ladykiller are also related the second part of his name: The "dancer" part, which refers to the way he  sheepishly makes his way across a frozen puddle, in the winter. His hoofs can't get enough grip! The most hardened Tacoma pimps can't help but giggle with delight when one of these little Fred Astaires comes sliding across the ice. Adults have a white head, with a white chest, white legs and black hoofs. And juveniles display these traits, too. Try not to let them catch you looking, or they'll blush!!  Voice: Kind of a "chirp" sound.
