    Got a good pic of Tiffany trying to get close enough to this fawn to sniff it. She was very curious! I had to trim the pic quite a bit so I wasnt really as close as it appears.

    Cute picture but just be aware that my goats got biting lice from a buck that was trying to mate with them. I am keeping my out for him this year.

    This little fawn is orphaned, and she is the only deer we've ever seen on our property. There are deer all around us of course (on the other side of the fences), but the goats, horse, and dog scare them off. Our dog Hannah wants to "mother" every baby she comes across and can get right up to this little one and lick her. We try to put feed out for her but it usually ends up that the goats get most of it.
    Thankfully ever since we got the guineas our goats havent had any more lice problems and very few ticks.

    That picture is wonderful. Now you say the fawn is orphaned, What does she eat, I know you said you put some feed out for her, but I would think she still needs to nurse. Someone here had a fawn behind their house, and the mom never came back for her, they waited three days, then finally called the department of Wildlife, they came and took her to some rescue that could feed her.

    That is a good idea. Otherwise, she might not make it. That would be sad....What a great picture!! Thanks for sharing!!
