My new doe runs around my legs while loose in the garden.
I go out carefully as I know she will come over to me but have accidentally kicked her twice this week (not hard! Just as im taking catious steps) as she appears from nowhere. 🙁

A buck I had many years ago did this too but I think he stopped when neutered.

I am planning on getting her neutered and getting her a friend. She is around 2 years of age.

Is it a hormonal/territorial behaviour? Does it usually improve with neutering and getting a friend? She is so friendly bless her.
