Topsfield Fair 2010?

Okay, so some really weird Gazelle animal looking thing, very cute, licked my hand at the Topsfield Fair 2010 today. And I forgot what it was called.
I'd like to know the name of the species.
I was at the Topsfield fair in the petting zoo. The animal was next to the Ring Tailed Lemurs, and I if I remember correctly it's name started with an E.

I couldnt find anything on google nor could i find stuff on the website...any info would be appreciated.

I live in topsfield fair today.

It was surely a Thompson's gazelle. The species name is Eudorcas thomsoni and indeed, they ARE cute! I handled a few in my time as a veterinary technition for a exotic animal hospital. They're very tiny, only weighing 30 - 40 pounds or so. You could carry a newborn fawn with one hand.
Very beautiful even though he nibbled my fingers with some overzealous eating.
