Molly, Stewie and Dyson will be heading to their new home in Forrestfield this weekend. They will moving into a lovely green paddock where their new carers can see them from the house. We hope these three enjoy a long happy life with their new family <3
Molly, Stewie and Dyson have lived together most of their lives, and have become inseparable. Molly was rescued off of the roadway approximately five years ago. Having escaped from a flock of Damara’s from a neighbouring property, and ventured into her now carer’s property via the front gate. The original carer’s tried to catch her, but eventually gave up and she has remained at the property ever since. Stewie was the next to arrive, after a family member in Geraldton asked if they could take in a rescued lamb as company for Molly. They agreed, and Stewie duly arrived in the backseat of their car with kids keeping him company for the drive home. As a lamb Dyson was also rescued from the roadway outside of the property. He could be heard on the other side of the fence crying, trying to get inside to Molly and Stewie. The owner’s opened the gate to him, and so they found themselves the carers of three sheep.
Molly gets very distressed if she is separated from the others. She is quite skittish and is wary of people and dogs; she was obviously traumatised from her experiences prior to her current home. Stewie is the most sociable of the three; he is laid back and used to human contact. Like Molly, Dyson is also very unsure of humans and dogs. He looked up to Molly growing up and has learned from her to be wary of both.
The carer’s of Molly, Stewie and Dyson are now in a position where they need to rehome these beautiful creatures. Age and health issues are catching up with them, and they are struggling to maintain their property and have no choice but to relocate to a much smaller residence. The couple are yet to place their property on the market, as finding a home for these three first is paramount to them.
Molly, Stewie and Dyson have recently been sheared and will be vaccinated and wormed before handover to her new family.
