Friends in the Field

24 Sep

I believe we had a set of twin deer orphaned in the pasture.  My nephew saw them when he was getting the round bales out of pasture, and I’ve seen at least one of them a few times.

Way back when it was still tiny

The reason I am pretty sure they are orphans are because you typically don’t see them out that often by themselves–bouncing around and hanging out with the llamas by themselves.  I also found that a deer got caught in the fence. I felt horrible.  If I had seen her stuck there, I could have rescued her.  That is the exact same way Tiger caught his foot in the fence the week before I sold him.

I’m not sure if these are the same twins or not.  It’s hard to judge what they should look like by now.

Sorry for the poor quality. It was just dawn and horribly foggy.

This one jumped the fence the other morning when I went out to milk goats and startled them.  I’m not sure it can get back over because it’s a lot bigger jump from the pasture side.

This one almost looks older, but I think they are both still fairly young.

I hope they can thrive in the pasture (and avoid hunters this fall).

    I’m really sorry about the deer that was caught on the fence. That must have been hard for you. I hope the fawns do well.

    We saw a deer caught in a fence near a road we travel frequently. It was already dead.
