she a lovely looking hind looks young a nice animal .i would watch hinds all day . teeth are a good guide its hard to age sika by them as some eat grass on low ground,some live only on the hill. a ear tagged sika hind died of old age at 16 on the hill only a few hundred yards from where she was tagged as calf about a year later another was found just die n not far a way from where they were tagged . we should be tagging more calfs .there is a few tagged where i cull its a bitch having to look at ears in the middle of a burst .the oranage tag saved them more than once
I know what you mean irishgun. I sit and watch them for ages, they are so elegant and at the moment very talkative. I would say that the one in the photo is the one in the best condition and I am fairly sure she did not calve this year. Maybe that adds weight to the thought that she is a youngster.
Good looking hind there mate
As malcolm has said there all different in there ways & looks, Is that a hind you had off me or 1 you already had
When you spend time with them & watch them closely you start to notice how each & every one of them look different, I can pick some of mine out from the heard with ease & they seem to be able to pick me out as well, Probably the biscuits in my pocket
Nice to see there looking well mate. I will pop up & have a look at them when im free buddy
