European Red Deer at Chow Time

A friend of mine feeding his European Red Deer last night. The Deer he is petting, (Dora) was born on his deer farm and is the only one he has been able to consistently touch

without having the animal run away. Most other deer reject anyone other than more deer once they are over two days old, she is an oddity among a very skittish breed of deer.

She is actually very calm when he pets her while the other deer hate anything that is different in their field of view, and react accordingly. The rest of the herd did not act normally because I

was within thirty meters of their eating spot so they had to overcome their nervousness to get to their grain and apples. Straight OOC after a small crop. No other PP

The guy in the shot liked the picture a great deal. That deer has some character when dealing with people she knows well. (The deer farm owners only.)

Here is another one from the series of about 130 shots I took that day. he had also brought out a large bucket of apples from a tree outside the fencing to give them a treat.
