Stags! Massive bad boys right up close. HUGE racks of horns. So impressive. When we first saw one on the other side of the fence, for a moment I thought it was wild ;) “Cookie!” I shouted in a hushed whisper :) Quietly he snuck out the camera, and we crept forward stealthily. Of course that stag clocked us straight away. He gave us a proud stance for a few moments before trotting off head held high. A grand animal he was! Only a few moments later and three more appeared in the grass. Seemingly fairly tame. Then further along, a whole crowd of little ones scattered themselves across the tops of the ridge. Amazing!
Longslip Station is a Stag Farm! Some big ol’ deer is the last animal (other than the imaginary Kiwi) we had on our list to see :)
