News From The Farm
Have you visited the National Collection of Rhodedendrons and Azalias at Wentworth Castle?
The fantastic display is well worth a visit if you haven’t been yet and next to the Castle in STAINBOROUGH PARK
The Fallow deer can still be seen in front of the house but calving is now well advanced in the Red Deer herd so they are currently in the Park maternity wing where they can have some peace and hide their calves in the longer grass until they are strong enough to run.
There is no public access to this area for obvious reasons but if walking down the pathway outside the fence you may see a calf lying by itself close to the wire.
Please keep well clear, it has not been abandoned.
In the wild the deer hide their calves in long grass or other cover telling them, in deer language, to stay there until they get back at which point they go off to feed with the herd.
Human hands on calves at this stage can be a disaster as the mother may abandon a calf with human scent.
All the deer on the farm and in STAINBOROUGH PARK are at last coming out of their winter period of inappetance, sniffing the warming air, and looking for every blade of new grass willing to poke its head through the dead mat of old grass.
Sadly the freezing snow was too much for three fallow deer in the park. We found them after the snow covering them had melted.
The big stags at the farm have just cast their buttons (the cap remaining over the growing point left when we removed their weapons at the start of the mating season last year.
New antlers are starting to grow and an inch is being added every day.
It will be September before they look like the ones held by Katie see below.
