Arlo (sheep) Arrived 5th November 2017

In early November we were contacted be someone in the local area who had a few sheep that they were breeding, apparently one of the lambs wasn’t doing so well. When we arrived to pick up the little Damara-cross, he was very flat and suffering with an eye infection. After picking him up, he was taken to the vet so his eye could be assessed – he was treated with antibiotics and eye drops twice daily. After his treatment, Arlo’s eye was as good as new and he is now in perfect health.


When Arlo first arrived, he shared a yard with Gandalf who he bonded with very quickly. Unfortunately Gandalf’s health declined, and Arlo found himself all alone as he was too tiny to join the small herd of lambs (along with Jackson the kid).


He wasn’t alone for long though, soon Betty, Audrey, Lucas and Jack arrived at the sanctuary and Arlo had company again. He and his four new friends will stay in one of the nursery yards together until they grow big enough to join the adult herd.


Arlo is a shy, very sweet little boy and we’re so glad that he found his way to Happy Hooves. We hope he lives a long happy life here with all of his friends.



Would you like to help us to take care of Arlo?  One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.
