A Sunday morning cuddle with Ben...
It's not often that we get to be close to these animals that we either see in movies or learn about in school. Deer are notoriously fast on their hooves and even seeing one close up is difficult. Until I met Ben.
He was found on the road as a baby deer. The local Hunter, Stefan, was called to collect the baby deer. There was no sign of his mother and he would have starved had it not been for Stefan. You couldn't get a better carer. At times he even got up 5 times a night to feed Ben...here is a link to my blog post about a really small Ben!
I hadn't walked past Ben's new home for a while and when I did yesterday morning, I saw that Stefan was feeding him. Of course I stopped to say Hello.
