Donut (sheep) Arrived 4th July 2017

On the 4th of July (2017), we were contacted about a little lamb less than 24 hours old. A lady had taken on the lamb (who was later named donut due to the ring pattern on the top of his head) though she had little knowledge on how to care for such a young lamb. With the help of some volunteers Donut was brought to Happy Hooves the same day, arriving late that night.

The next day he was taken to our vet for a health assessment. His abdominal area was a bit tender around the umbilical cord so he was prescribed with antibiotics. He also had a few stitched below his right eye for Entropion – a medical condition in which the eyelid (usually the lower lid) folds inward. It is very uncomfortable, as the eyelashes continuously rub against the cornea causing irritation.

These days Donut is a happy healthy boy and very affectionate. He spends his days with his friends Evie, Harry, Oliver, Nigel, Fergus and Angus, and Jackson the little goat kid. It won’t be too much longer and the young sheep will be graduating to the flock over 40 sheep!


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