Update on Spotloggins and mum Iris
Once Spotloggins and Iris had recovered from their “orf” and no longer wore their blue makeup, or treatment, we decided that they could go out into one of the small paddocks without startling our other residents. Iris, thanks to her diligent efforts to eat her way through everything she could get her hooves on, has now put on lots of weight and is producing milk so she can feed Spot herself. He has grown. As you can see they both look well, contented and very pleased to be out on the grass.
As spring arrives two of the Stepney sheep become Mums
Rescued from an inner city farm in London some months back, two of the three ewes have presented us with three handsome lambs. It doesn’t appear that the third ewe is in lamb. Abigail has a daughter called Barbara – affectionately known by all here as Abs and Babs – and Joan has twins Jake and Jacko.
Rene and Rupert at around ten months old were due to go for slaughter, or what there was of them on their skinny bodies, but were rescued by the compassionate people who had spent the last few months fusing them as they ran up to the fence in their field. Rene and Rupert were bought from the farmer who had neglected them leaving them in a poor condition with very dirty fleeces and bottoms and under weight. They both travelled well on their journey to us from Berkshire arriving with bright and hopeful faces. They have settled very well, are starting to put on weight and have been cleaned up making friends here with last year’s orphans.
Spot, Iris, Abs and Babs, Joan, Jake, Jacko, Rupert and Rene are all on the look out for sponsors. If you can help please contact us – thank you.
