Well, to make this horsey and somewhat belong here, All the horses are doing fine, Specs now stands still when I tell him to and we just recently got a PR in barrels with a 18.09 at our local barrel racing club.
BUT TO THE REAL POINT, URGENT!
I was riding the fourwheeler with my brother in the field when we I saw a baby deer run out from what seemed like under the fourwheeler I was driving. I don't think I ran over it but it was dang close, that lucky deer (considering we were doing at lease 20mph). I could tell it was a young fawn because of the size, scronny, and it had the 'Bambi spots', as my brother called it ;). So my brother ran after it (and it was very fast, so he didn't catch it), and the poor thing finally ran into the grove of trees and hid somewhere in there. After more than an hour of looking under every tree and finally deciding it was in the thicket which will be very impossible to get under, we decided to give up.
I'm so worried though. I feel so bad. I dont' think the mother will find it, because it's at least a half mile from where we first came accross it. I just hope I didn't kill it... Plus it was alone, and I asked my dad when I came back and he said that he saw it earlier today and just thought it was away from its mother... What if it's orphaned? And I just indirectly caused its death?
I'm so depressed now.
Do you think it's an orphan? Do you think it'll die? Should I go back out and look for it some more?
I just don't know what the right thing to do is.
Pleae help me out.
