Yesterday we were in Elswout for a long walk with our dear husky ladies, enjoying the coolness of the shade in between the magic trees in this the most beautiful oasis outside Haarlem.
At the end of the walk we ended up next to the deer, where on a sunny Sunday in the middle of summer you always have plenty of families with very young children checking the deer out.
There were quite some fawns born the past week and two adorable ones were pretty close to the fence, checking the kids out with the same curiousity they kids checked them out.
All of a sudden one of the children´s mother said;
“They are soooooooooooo cute, right!?”
Her daughter tilted her curly blond little head towards her and said “yes, mum” as her brother was breaking off twigs to feed the doe and her friends.
“Should we take them home?” mum asked – and that very second the four doe´s and two bucks jumped up, turned around and chased the fawns off to the middle of the field.
“Oh my G, what happened” mum said, looking puzzled.
“I have no clue” dad replied, and they were both shaking their heads.
Yeah, what happened?
