Awwww, Bambi.

Post by TCRanch » Fri Jun 08, 2018 6:03 pm

So this was yesterday's drama. Heard this poor little fawn bawling, mama snorting & one of the dogs barking. It had somehow got all tangled up in some old, down fence in the woods behind the house. Naturally there's a ton of poison ivy down there. Grabbed the fence cutters & eventually got it out. Pretty wobbly at first but after a while took off & hopefully reunited with its mama. So far neither of us are suffering from the ivy although last night I jolted awake, sure I heard it still bawling & convinced mama rejected it. Took a moment to realize it was Hubby's nose whistling - not quite a full blown snore. :roll:

The skeleton of one about that size or just a bit older is still hanging on one of my fences from last year sometime..

Rhetorical question but WHY do they bed 'em down in pastures/fields instead of woods? :bang:

coyotes...weve got several that bed their fawns up by the house. I'm having problems posting pics. I sent one to farm fence the other day . maybe he will put it up. it started with one and over the years I think the fawns have grown up and picked up the same habit.. I'm sure its because they know they are safe there.

I don't know about your area, but around here, the skeeters, deer flies and horse flies are so bad in the woods nothing wants to stay there very long, including me.

And today's drama. Fourth time we've had to rescue one of the neighbors' goats. There's a reason why they make cattle panels & GOAT/sheep panels. :roll:
