NEWS - July 2014

Sherbet The Swaledale


Young Sherbet was found by a family out walking in the Yorkshire Dales. Stood on his own, the family kindly took him back several times to a group of nearby sheep and lambs, but they kept pushing him away. So young Sherbet went home with the family who reared him for several weeks until he was fit enough to travel so, despite it being a hard decision to part with the little chap who had by now become very much a part of his new family, he made the journey down to the Sanctuary. He is now around 10 weeks old. Initially Sherbet had fits but he now seems to have grown out of those, happily. He spends the day in one of our smaller paddocks returning in the evening to his pen in the barn which he shares with Nana, his adopted granny who just loves him.

Widget and Fidget Finally Make Their Photo Call


These two young lads were dumped on the Sanctuary’s doorstep a couple of months back. They obviously had not been used to being handled so it has taken a while for them to pose for their internet debut. Here they are at last.

Blue Light To The Vet For Ruby


You may remember this rather fetching photo of Ruby last year in her blue T-shirt following an operation to remove a growth on her side. That was when she became great friends with Steven the vet who is now her hero for a second time. Ruby was coughing and refused to eat, a first for her, so that set the alarm bells ringing and she was blue lighted by Jan to the vet last Monday. Well, as you can see, Ruby is a very big girl so no lifting onto the examination table for her. Instead she and hero Steven sat on the floor and, whilst Steven listened to Ruby’s chest, she put both front paws on his shoulders and gave him not only a hug but a huge wet, slobbery kiss. That set her on the road to recovery enhanced by antibiotics to cure her throat infection. Thank You Steven.

Thank You To Emily And Finlay Dankworth
