A morning of fun.
Isn't it amazing how most days something exciting happens. That, of course is the reason I am never without my trusty camera. Take yesterday for example. My mum and I went off to clean a Holiday Kellerstöckl and along the way she mentioned that one of the neighbours was looking after a young buck.
Wow, meeting a young buck up close can normally only be done in a zoo. I see buck(s) ( apart from the odd penny on the floor ) often on my walks but only fleetingly and in the distance.
This little buck is about three weeks old and was rescued in the middle of the night. He was found lying in the road and had obviously been abandoned by his mother and family. Stefan was phoned and he has been taking care of this little bundle for about a month now. He has built him a little enclosure complete with a nice sleeping nest. To be honest, when I saw how cute this little guy was, I would have let it sleep inside the house with me. His legs are still wobbly and he bolts around like an unsure teenager.
Stefan is so good with this little fella. He bottle feeds him 5 times a day and even gets up for the 3am feed. Frankly, I think Stefan is experiencing what any new mum goes through. Sheer exhaustion. These little one need attention the whole time and the buck is no different.
