Any guesses who the donor is? Deer, maybe?

Found in the field at the barn. We've got a vertebrae, what I think is the top of a femur, perhaps three from the pelvis and one patella or head of another femur?

Yes, most likely deer.

There used to be a whole lower division class at the college I went to that was devoted solely to bones and how to re create the animal by examining the lengths of each bone and it's proportions relative to other bones, useful for anthropologists - but yours are a little too short.

If that pen's 6 inches long it could be a fawn/deer.
