Default You gotta see this(pics)

Well I stopped by a friends today and it seems they have a new friend on the farm. Seems they saw this fawn in the ditch and it wouldn't move for 24hrs...... it sat in the same spot. They first saw it and figured they would leave it in case the mother was coming back. They went back the next day and it was still there in the same spot. So they brought it home to the farm. Turns out it would suck. She tried for 2 days..... splashing in its mouth and then finally it hit the bottle. She fed it lamb formula as that is what the vet said would be best. After 3 days on formula it started eating leaves....... but still gets formula too. Actually it bleats when its overdue for milk.
Really cool if you ask me. The woman(I won't name names) doesn't intend to keep it. She figures when HE'S ready to leave he will. She just wants to give a chance. She knows it would be an easy target in the future but at least she gives him a chance.
I won't name names b/c it not legal here. The CO's would come out and shoot it on the spot. I agree with her and won't ever tell anybody her name but I don't think many people would around my part of the country. Give it a chance....... he might make something of himself

We had fawns in our neighbors backyard this spring and the mother left them there. We watched and the doe did come and feed them and stayed for a short while then left them there. If you weren't watching you would guess the fawns were abandoned. I would guess the doe didn't abandon this little fawn just appeared that way. It's alot of work raising a fawn up - tell her good luck.

Thats neat. Here is one a friend of the family still has around. Keep in mind he is not a penned deer. He is inside a fence but it is only 4 ft. tall and he is free to come and go as he pleases.

This is him last year at a 1 1/2 yr old


This is him from July 11. He has put on quite a bit more since then.

Better be careful. He might start getting a little more aggressive this year. Those things are more dangerous when they aren't scarred of humans.

Yeah I heard they can get pretty nasty. But then I've heard others act just like a dog.
