Sponsor A Sheep 

Last year around this time we rescued 5 old ewes that were going to be sent to market. Ewes that were passed their sell by date. 

We were given the chance to save some and we took in 5 old ladies. 

Their names are "Mary" "EJ" "Flossie" "Ellen" and "Lilly" with them coming from the farming industry and very little human interaction i expected them to be very unfriendly. 
How wrong i was... "Mary and EJ" are 2 of the friendliest most loving and affectionate sheep that we have. 

3 of the old ladies turned out to be pregnant which was pretty scary as they were old and very bony....Through the winter we made sure that we gave them all that they needed and more and a few months later they gave birth to healthy bouncing lambs...

The old gals and their babies are still with us and will stay with us for the rest of their lives. 

17 more  old ewes came to us last xmas...ALL SAFE NOW 


By sponsoring an old ewe for a year you literally are saving a life. Taking on old sheep comes at a cost as vet bills rise plus they need extra care and special attention. 
Last year we gave our oldies their own pensioner pad so we could keep watch over them and make sure all were getting what they needed. Often old sheep have no teeth and struggle to eat long stranded hay...We feed them a specialist horse fine chopped hay along with beet and course and make sure they have constant access to mineral blocks and high protein feed...
