Minerva R28/15


Minerva is a giant black doe who came to us in 2015 with her mother Maat as her owner was struggling to cope and because she was at risk from foxes. She was born in 2012/13. She and her mother and then just her lived with Juniper. Towards the end of his life they lived in the barn because his mobility was too poor to cope with being outside. She seemed to regard him as her personal mattress and he certainly couldn’t have felt the cold with her draped over him. He became completely immobile¬† and distressed about it in February 2018 and we had to let him go. She is really going to miss him. He will be a hard act to follow.
