When Shadow Valley filmed one of its does, Lacy, giving birth, the resulting footage was simply magical. Her newborn fawn was as cute as can be. However, as the camera continued to roll, something startlingly different emerged.
Shadow Valley Whitetails is a farm based in Rivesville, West Virginia, and specializes in the breeding of whitetail and piebald deer. Founded in 2000, the farm is the first facility of its kind to focus on such breeds, and it prides itself on its top-quality bloodlines.
The key to Shadow Valley’s success is in the efforts staff go to in socializing their herd. Fawns are bottle fed, resulting in calm, healthy adults that are less likely to become stressed in working environments.
