NEWS - August 2014

Nursery In The Barn


This young lady discovered a quiet corner of one of the barns and decided it would be a good place to give birth to and raise her babies, all three of them. With daily dishes of cat food and lots of straw for her nest the whole family are thriving.

Sherbet The Swaledale Moves In With Grace And Gabriella

Having had his young man’s operation Gabriella and Grace decided that it would be safe for Sherbet to move in with them and with his foster granny NaNa now finding him a bit of a handful the move was made. All three get on very well together - all three bright, healthy, happy and very sociable lambs.

Hay and Fleeces


Most of our fleeces are sold to the Wool Marketing Board with some more exotic ones being sold for a better price by Liz, here is the less exotic waiting in the barn for collection along side this year’s crop of our own hay a very useful addition to our stores for the winter. Helping to raise funds for the Sanctuary and to save on costs.

Thank You Sarah!

So far Sarah Harker has raised over £460 following her 5K Run at the Lymm festival last month. From All of Us Here, Sarah, THANK YOU!

Thank You To Moofree Chocolates

For setting up their own page on Just Giving for donations and to alerting their customers to our need for funds. They produce a wide range of dairy free chocolates and chocolate bars all yummy.

New Arrivals


We were asked last year to provide a home for 13 sheep who due to domestic problems could no longer stay with their owner. Seemingly the situation deteriorated and Trading Standards became involved in the welfare of the group. Eventually they arrived at the Sanctuary from Staffordshire brought by Trading Standards who also provided transport for them. In their words, “These are all young sheep, it would be a shame for them to go to slaughter We would like them to have a chance.” And thanks to you and Trading Standards now they have one. Starved and very dirty when they arrived a month back their condition is improving quickly. As for the horns, well, we think they have been badly bred and in the interests of their welfare the vet has removed the bits that would have been a danger to them if caught up in fencing or hedges. See the before and after photos! Any suggestions for names welcome.

Our George Two Years On


And what a difference! Thank you all for supporting George in his battle to over come his disability, for your kind messages and for your donations making it possible for George to live happily at the Sanctuary.
