NEWS - May 2014

Gabriella and Grace

two lambs

You may remember from last month’s News Page that these two young ladies were brought to the Sanctuary having been neglected and both had infected eyes, sadly one of Gabriella’s eyes was so badly damaged that it had to be removed. Back then they were trampolining on and off Janet’s bed during the night between feeds. They quickly got to the stage of chewing CD’s and using shoes as a toilet, it’s then that all the bedroom lambs have to vacate the bedroom for the comforts of their own pen in one of the barns, judging that they are well on the way to their recovery. Gabriella’s and Grace’s pen is next door to, the elderly and blind from birth, Daisy who has been a surrogate Mum for many of our orphaned lambs. Daisy sleeps against the Girl’s pen imparting tales of the Sanctuary and her life with us to her young charges. As you can see form their photo Grace and Gabriella are growing into strong, happy and inquisitive girls with Gabriella not in the least bit daunted by having only one eye.

Sooty Succeeds At Last


Last year Sooty the hen laid an egg with the help of Basil the cockerel sadly that egg never hatched. However, the fickle Sooty, having changed partners to Percy the Perkin cockerel, has succeeded in not only laying an egg but hatching it this time. We are not yet sure whether Sooty and Percy’s offspring is a boy or a girl, as Sooty will not let anyone near her precious baby.

Amy Palmer Runs A Second and Third Time for the Sanctuary

Amy you must be going through pairs of running shoes at a vast rate! Amy is running for the Sanctuary because “she cares 24/7 about farm animals.” Her two pending events are both this month, The Glastonbury 10K and the Wells 10K. Please visit Amy’s fundraising page on Just Giving and give your support to this wonderful young woman. From the Animals and Jan, THANK YOU AMY AND GOOD LUCK.
