Sucks Mike. Sorry about the doe fawn. Hopefully that buck fawn will make up for the loss.

Thanks Steve. Just wish I could have done something, but it's tough when they are born in the middle of the night. I checked the girls last night before dark and none of them were acting ready, so I was a little surprised this morning when I found the fawns.

Getting ready to check the pens for more fawns... then I'm gonna check out game 1 of the PENS vs. Carolina!!! Let's go PENS!!!!!!!!!!!

Forgive me... I get a little crazy during playoff hockey... well football too, but it's hockey season right now!

Well Dc no more fawns from her....she was just a nervous reck with us being in there....things settled down and she started taking good care of the doe fawn....I was debating on pulling her tonight or not and decided Mamas milk is pretty important so I left her out for the night........good news is my buck fawn with the cracked hoof is doing well.......had the vet out and we put him down and cut the nail back to the break...there was a little blood but no infection .....filled him with antibiotics anyhow......but he was already walking on the hoof better..........oh well let's see what tomorrow brings.......hey Micheal our PENS DID IT ........PENS UP BY ONE!!! That helped my day!

I think I found the definitive answer, when the view out your front door looks like this.... its time to pull fawns. I can't even see the edge of the earth anymore.

Finally Quit, we just kept fooling the kids, had to be rough, i never heard of her making him no cookies for trip. never went to help. had to be a bag never heard much of her, to cope he spent all his time in the stalls working. dont let them cold winters get you too!!Are trying your luck with whitetail, instead of reindeer.
