This woolly family consisting of one male, 3 ewes and their 3 offspring were impounded by the City of Cockburn a little over two months ago. Their owners were could not be found, and no one came to collect them. We decided to bring them to Happy Hooves until we could secure a good home for them (as our space is very limited these days).
When they first arrived, they’re condition was quite poor, but after a couple of months living at Happy Hooves, they have filled out nicely. Mr Snuggles (who’s not so snuggly) was castrated by our vet, so there will be no more additions to this little herd.
The sheep have been wormed and vaccinated and are ready to move in with their new family.
QUICK REFERENCE LIST:
AGE: Varying ages (approx. 2 months – a few years)
SEX: 6 females, 1 male (castrated)
BREED: Damara cross
DESEXED: Male is de-sexed (females are intact)
TEMPERAMENT: Mother and baby are fairly comfortable around humans, the other five are quite skittish.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: They are a family and will need to be rehomed together.

* Animal Actionist promotes non breeding of all rescued animals, particularly in the interest of breaking the cycle of unwanted farm animals (most of them males,) that find themselves with little time to find a new home and end up in danger of slaughter. All farm animals adopted via Animal Actionist are intended as family pets, and therefore the same rules that apply for non breeding of cats and dogs, applies to these animals too. If you apply to adopt you thereby agree and are bound to not use this animal for breeding.
