Give a Gift Of LIfe ~ We are going to try and save 17 lives 

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. 

This year we have the chance to step in and save more of the old gals ....Knowing how wonderful these ladies are we are going to try and save them all which is 17 old ewes. 

Can you help with this save... 

By adopting 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...

You will recieve a photo card of the rescued ladies along with a handwritten message of thanks and we will email updates throughout the year of your adoption and you get the chance to come and meet the old ladies if you choose to X
