Maggie is a mixed wool and hair breed of sheep who was rescued from a sheep farm where she was a production unit for her lambs and eventually, possibly used for ‘mutton’ herself. She was rescued by another farm sanctuary and then rehomed to our sanctuary in the summer of 2019. The previous sanctuary owners were unaware that she was pregnant when she was rescued and one day they were greatly surprised to see a newborn lamb beside her who they named Luna. It was very important for the mother and daughter to be kept together and we were happy that we could give them a home after quickly finishing the fence for our front lawn. Maggie is on the shy side but does slowly warm up to visitors. She has also remained a protective and loving mother to Luna.
Luna, being born on a farm sanctuary, has only known love and care from people so she is very friendly with visitors. She can still be a bit on the shy side but is more curious and outgoing with people. You can usually find her and her mom mowing our lawn or sharing a hay bag with Daniel. Luna is unlike most lambs as they will never get a chance to grow up with their mothers, or grow up at all. Lambs are typically slaughtered before they are 6 months old with the females, just like dairy cows and goats, are raised only to return to the production line in the sheep industry.
Blue was rejected at birth by his mother and the owners wanted him to go to a forever home rather than end up as a lamb meal. He was only a couple of weeks old when he came to live with us and then
got to live in the sanctuary founder’s home for over 2 months. He was no different than our “house pets” – he loved to sit on the couch or in front of the fireplace and even slept in bed (with diapers on of course!) Over time, he was a big enough boy to move outside so he could graze and be a sheep. He is
still as affectionate and sweet as ever!
Sapphire was in need of a new home and she came along at the perfect time – to be a big sister for Blue when he needed to move outside. She has settled into her new life at our sanctuary and quickly bonded with Blue. She is shy but she is also very sweet and gentle. Sapphire is slowly learning to trust us and enjoy being petted on her own terms, like all the animal residents at our sanctuary.
