Eloise

Eloise (pig) Arrived 20th November 2017

Little Eloise was discovered in somebody’s rear garden. She was collected by rangers and taken to the City of Cockburn pound where she was impounded for 11 days. She was advertised, but no owner came forward so they staff contacted us about the homeless piglet.

Eloise was not alone for long, as not long after her arrival we were contacted about another piglet, around the same age. Eloise was soon joined by Camilla, though the introduction did not go as smoothly as we had hoped – they seemed to hate each other!

They started off living in the hospital barn, in enclosures beside each other so they could get used to one another’s presence. They spent short amounts of time together in one yard, before they had to be separated due to fighting. It was a slow process of introduction, but eventually the two became the best of friends.

The girls have recently moved into the newly completed pig paradise extension, where they currently spend there days wallowing in the mud, and cuddling together at night.

Bellamy

Bellamy (sheep) Arrived 15 November 2017

Ten month old Bellamy was discovered running down a country road, with no sheep farms in sight his origin was unknown. He was picked up and taken to Happy Hooves where he was treated for an eye infection.

It didn’t take long for Bellamy to warm to us. He joined the small flock of adolescent sheep, including Oliver, Evie, Harry, Nigel, Fergus and Angus, as well as Jackson the young goat. The group have since graduated to the adult herd of over 60 sheep, where Bellamy is making lots of new friends.

Despite trying different methods to reduce his crows, they are worried that he will be discovered, and authorities will take him away. They are very fond of this little guy and are eager to find him a loving home.

Ivan will be wormed and vaccinated before handover to his new family, and an adoption fee of $20 applies.

Felix

Felix (duck) Arrived 18th November 2018

We received a phone call in mid-November from someone who had a Muscovy drake, they were worried about their dog possibly attacking the duck. We agreed to give him a home at Happy Hooves, although we weren’t sure how he would get along with Chester, the Muscovy already residing at the sanctuary, as Chester can be a bit of a bully.

Initially Chester did boss Felix around, and even tried to prevent him from accessing the food bowl. But not long after they seemed to settle down, and are often relaxing nearby each other. Felix is very sweet, he allows us to come close and pat him.

Nigel (sheep) Arrived 2nd August 2017

Nigel came from the same farm as Angus and Fergus, luckily he came to us in much better health than his friends.

He is one of the most affectionate lambs we have ever met. He loves when the sanctuary has visitors, he’ll find someone to smooch up to and will stay cuddled up in their arms until they leave.

Roger

Roger (rooster) Arrived 1st September 2017

In late August little Roger the rooster turned up on someone’s porch, that someone happened to be afraid of roosters. He loitered on their front porch, peaking in the door. Happy Hooves were contacted about the rogue rooster, and his reign of terror came to an end. He was picked up and transported to the sanctuary where he joined his new best friend, Rusty. The pair are getting along wonderfully and are enjoying sanctuary life.

The West Busselton Five

Falcon, Sherbet, Popcorn, Pepper & Rocket (roosters) Arrived 8th August 2017

Sherbet, Falcon, Popcorn, Pepper and Rocket were the result of backyard hatching. Their owner’s already had a flock of chicken, one being a particularly broody hen. Their children asked if they could obtain some eggs to raise under her. Though they didn’t consider how they would accommodate them, should some be born male. This is something she now feels very sorry about, and hopes others learn from her experience.

The mother of the house embarked on a mission to find these boys a caring home. She emailed every vet and sanctuary within a 200km radius, and advertised them publicly, though this proved to be unsuccessful, and only attracted people with unsavoury plans for the roosters. Finally there was a light at the end of the tunnel, as she had discovered a place that called itself a rooster rescue. She had three in-depth conversations with the owner before deciding that this would be the rooster’s new home.

After a 300km drive with 5 roosters and 2 children in the car, she arrived at the so-called rooster rescue. But when she arrived, she realised she had been deceived. They had arrived at what she called a very inhumane place, a scene of many caged and neglected birds – It was clearly not a loving home for roosters, or any animal for that matter.

She and the kids sat in the driveway of this place in tears, as the property owner hassled her about leaving the roosters with him. She knew she could not leave her boys at such a horrible place. She rang us while she was in his driveway, very distraught and explained the whole story. Luckily we were able to make some room for them, and she continued to drive for another hour up to the sanctuary.

The boys settled in nicely, but unfortunately a couple of weeks after their arrival little Falcon became flat one evening. We had arranged to get him to the vet the next morning and in the meantime we kept in inside and tended to him, but sadly he didn’t make it through the night.

The four remaining roosters are doing really well, and are enjoying life here at Happy Hooves.

Arlo

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.
