Ruby (sheep) Arrived 15 July 2016
Ruby was found trying to suckle from her dead mother on a local farm. Messages were left for the farmer, but as we had no response, she now has a forever home here with us. We estimate she was about two weeks old when found, and must have received first milk from mum to have survived as long as she did, including weathering the severe rain and storms we had in the two weeks prior to finding her.
Uncharacteristically, we had no other rescue lambs at the time we found Ruby, and we were worried about her being alone, but just two days later, a woman got in touch with us asking if we could take her two one month-old lambs she had hand-reared on a farm she had worked on.
Ruby now has friends, Poppy and Chubby Belardi, feed, warmth, shelter and above all, love. Welcome to your new home, Ruby.
Would you like to help us to take care of Ruby? One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.
