Four wild lodgers - came to stay. The schmids' vines are located close to the edge of the forest. No wonder wild animals are frequent guests in the vineyard.
When leaving out, bird's nests with eggs are often found and hares also like to spend time in the vineyard. In winter the wild boars come and dig up the earth along the corridors to look for worms, insects and mice. Most wild animals, however, are more likely to visit the vineyard and cause little damage. Only four deer have more than taken a liking to the schmids' vines. It is not their business to just drop by for a visit. They prefer to live between the vines all year round. They are not tame, but you can get quite close to them. In autumn, however, they become a problem, because the animals enjoy the grapes and nibble the berries off the vines. Therefore they have to be chased away again and again and the grapes have to be protected with nets from the hungry subtenants - but this does not stop the forest dwellers from coming back.
