Thread: Unusual colouring in roe deer

    Unusual colouring in roe deer

    Was out this evening looking for a buck and came across a doe with the usual two well grown young but one of them had a large amount of pure white coat.
    The rear haunches were covered in a saddle shape and also large parts of the rear legs.
    I have never seen anything like this before in a roe and just wondered if anyone else has.

    On a recent trip to some new ground in dumfries I clocked a young roe kid with white haunches and a white face. Mentioned it to the keeper who must have thought I was mad. Hoping he has seen it himself by now!

    Daverl, your photograph of the skewbald buck behind the fence is exactly like the one that I saw.
    Perhaps they are not so uncommon after all.

    i've seen about 6 or 7 with varying amounts of white on them over the years but the one in the photo has the most.

    We've seen a few does like this and I currently have a buck with a white facemask.

    Here is a buck from 3 years ago. It moved 2 miles away from the origional photo in 2 weeks.
