    I love it! How adorable... you gotta tell me about the deer. You are obviously raising it. How long have you had her/him? What do you feed it? How did you come by having it?

    the deer is a euorpean fallow deer, a doe, we have had her almost 2 years. She belonged to some people about 2 miles away, they had 2 deer, and a miniature donkey, the donkey got big and started getting nippy towards the people, and they got rid of him, and the deer left. Lily found her way here, I don't know about the other one. the people didn't want her back, and she was skiddish because 5 guys held her down while they cut the tag from her ear, she was very shy, but we can pet her now, while she eats. she eats goat feed, hay, corn, and apples, carrots, any snacks the goats eat. she was in with our donkeys, I think that is why she came here, she must have been reminded of her donkey friend.
    So... she loves the goats, and the donkeys. she goes in with the donkeys sometimes but they get a little too rough with her. she seems to be content with the goats. our property is fenced in and she pretty much has run of the place.

    my first two goats are sanaans, and they are bred to boers so the babies are half boer. the others are pure blooded boer, and 1 other is 1/2 boer-1/2 sanaan.
    So..... I milk too! Goat milk is wonderful!
