If the location was...

Near English John's Keelkill I'd have said it might have been a Lamma!! Looks like such a long kneck.

Think your right

I have kept looking at this and I think your right the neck is wrong and you can just make out the facial features I would say Lamma too

I think its a case of ther

I think its a case of ther dark back of the animal not being as readily visible as the breast and neck giving it a longer appearance than usual. There are many deer in that area, I got a reasonable view of a number of them but unfortunately only this one pic. They passed by and this one stopped to look at the car which I was in when I took the pic.
