Update on Snowdrop the lamb

Snowdrop the lamb

Snowdrop is thriving extremely well and is growing and putting on weight as you would expect for a lamb of her age. However, because of her very low birth weight she remains very tiny and it will be some months before we feel confident that she will survive to have a happy life at the Sanctuary. What she lacks in size she most certainly makes up for in personality and determination! She is a very bright girl. She discovered Rich Tea biscuits a few weeks ago and now, having sampled a small piece, nudges you and your pockets every time she sees you. For one so small she does have an amazingly fantastic appetite standing in bowls of dried grass to prevent the others from getting their share!

Arnie the horse

Arnie the horse

Arnie joined us in March. He was bought from market by Janet to save him for going for slaughter -British horses are still being eaten in France. He is 12 years old and his owner told Janet that because of the credit crunch he had to sell either Arnie or his daughter's pony. Arnie drew the short straw. After a few days with us it became apparent that Arnie was also lame - a condition his owner had omitted to mention. He has what is called a low ring bone in his foot and will be permanently lame as this can rarely be rectified. Arnie is most certainly well settled and very happy. He follows dog walkers across the field - his has a public footpath in it - walking right behind them and ignoring the dogs. He lives with Charlie and Anya and his general condition is much better and he is no longer stressed. As you can see from his photo Arnie is obviously oblivious to the credit crunch.


Latest Arrival - Louise

Louise the sow

Louise arrived last week. Several months back her farmer owner contacted the Sanctuary to ask if we could take her. She was a favourite breeding sow being a good mother and always pleasant and happy and he didn't want her to go for slaughter once her breeding days were over. Like most breeding sows who are kept on concrete floors for the majority of their lives Louise has some arthritis in her joints and we have started her on joint oil which should help. She seems very laid back and just loves her wallow! Louise needs a sponsor - please email us. thank you.


Like most small charities the Sanctuary runs on an extremely tight budget to say the least. We do constantly need people to raise funds for the animals here. If you could organise an event in your area,a coffee morning, a street collection, a yard sale to help with our funding that would be a fantastic help. Thank you. Please contact us.
