Maximum grazing ratio is 8 fallow deer per acre. They can breed in their first season at 16 months old, which is annually in October, called ‘the rut’. They give birth in mid June.
Food: fallow deer eat mainly grass, however they also eat: nettles, brambles, doc, thistles, they will trim the hedge that comes through the fence.
In the winter you can feed them with hay, or haylage / silage and supplement with a pellet food.
Fallow Deer don’t require shearing, they will shed their coat and regrow a new one for summer and winter, whilst they do this they look a bit patchy, but require no assistance. Bucks will drop there antlers in April /May and they will fully regrow by August and be fully hardened by September ready for the rut in October.
Hand taming your deer, at 6 months old it is the best time to start to tame your deer. By feeding them daily with a pellet food, they love this food and will approach you whenever they see you.
Fencing requirements. There is a government rule book on deer fencing, with fallow deer it is a minimum of 1.8m high, we use tornado deer wire, however other options are available, if you have existing stock fencing, you can ‘top up’ by leaving the existing fencing in place and adding additional taller post and installing another row of stock fence above to achieve the recommended height. Government grants are available to cover the cost of the fence installation, Google search for ‘countryside stewardship scheme’.

We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a horse.
As with any type of purchase, make the necessary research so you know what you are supposed to get. Since owning a horse is a huge commitment, research about the breed if it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the horses. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the horse, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the horse. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal, you must have signed a well-defined contract.
The advertiser should only release the horses when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the horse from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
Time was running out for a little tabby in an animal shelter situated in Japan. He had to be adopted before the week is over, otherwise he would be euthanised. The chances of him finding a new “forever” home were slim, but fate does work wonders.
