Harry

Harry (sheep) Arrived 26th June 2017

Harry is a young merino lamb who was born on a farm, and left orphaned when his mother passed. As the owner’s of the farm were unable to provide adequate care for him – Harry wound up here at Happy Hooves.

He’s a very affectionate little boy, and has settled in well with the current group of young lambs – Evie, Lacey, Donut, Nigel, Fergus and Angus, and the little goat kid Jackson. When Harry and his lamb friends are a little bigger they will graduate to the adult flock together.

This little guys melts our hearts.

 

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

Rehomed! Molly, Stewie & Dyson are heading to their New Home

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 

Location: Woodridge

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.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME:              Molly, Stewie & Dyson

AGE:                 Molly – approx. 6yrs; Stewie – approx. 5yrs; Dyson – approx. 4yrs

SEX:                 Molly – female; Stewie & Dyson – male

BREED:            Molly – Damara; Stewie – Damara x Marino; Dyson – Merino

WEIGHT:          45-60 kgs

WORMED:        Yes

DESEXED:       Molly – no; Stewie & Dyson – yes (castrated)

VACCINATED:  Yes

TEMPERAMENT:  Molly – timid/skittish; Stewie – friendly; Dyson – timid/skittish

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  The three must be rehomed together, separation causes Molly and Dyson much distress. Sheep need to be sheared and crotched annually, and feet will need trimming.

ADOPTION FEE:  $100

Sweet Babi Needs a New Home

Location: Karratha

Babi was purchased by her current carers at just 10 weeks old and has been a part of the family ever since. She was sold to them as a miniature pig, but has grown outside of the shires limits for a pet pig. She has become too large and strong to take for walks (on the leash) and trips in the car, as she once had. Concerned the council will find out about her and take her away; her carers have made the difficult decision to rehome their dear Babi.

This pig has a lot of personality; she is curious and playful, intelligent and stubborn and like any of us, she can get a little grumpy from time to time. She understands basic commands like sit, turn around, lay, find and gentle (where she gently takes a treat from your hand).

Babi’s current carer’s are willing to transport her anywhere in WA, or perhaps further to ensure she ends up at the perfect home.

Babi is de-sexed and will be vaccinated before handover to her new family.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME:             Babi

AGE:               4 years

SEX:                Female

BREED:           Mixed-Breed Pig

HEIGHT:          80cm

WEIGHT:         110kg

WORMED:       Yes

DESEXED:       Yes

VACCINATED:      Yes

TEMPERAMENT:  Curious, playful, energetic, intelligent, quick-learning

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  Babi needs lots of love and attention, a special meat-free diet and plenty of space to explore.

ADOPTION FEE:  $50

Evie

Evie (lamb) Arrived 20th June 2017

Young Evie was the victim of a brutal dog attack. The mauled lamb was found by a member of the public, and had been dropped off at Armadale pound. One of our volunteers immediately went and picked her up and took her to our vet, where she stayed for three nights to undergo treatment for her wounds. She had suffered lacerations to her face and neck, and her right eye was damaged beyond repair.

We were not prepared for what we saw when Evie arrived at Happy Hooves three days later. Though we knew her condition was poor and her wounds were bad, they were actually far worse than we had anticipated. Realizing the pain and terror she must have suffered brought us to tears.

We did our best to keep her comfortable – we kept her inside with the fire going and administered pain relief while she healed. Her wounds needed to be cleaned twice daily, which we did as gently as possible. As time went on her overall demeanor and appetite improved.

Two weeks after her arrival, we took her back to the vet for a follow up appointment. They were happy with her progress – her wounds were healing nicely, and she was much heavier and stronger. It was also hoped that surgery to remove the eye wouldn’t be necessary, as it was shrinking away naturally.

It has now been two months since Evie came to us. She is doing amazingly well, her wounds have healed and wool is growing back in those areas. We opted to have her eye surgically removed, and she is currently healing from this procedure.

She now spends her days with new lamb friends – Harry, Lacey, Donut and Nigel. As for Evie’s missing eye, she won’t be alone, as she will be one of three one-eyed sheep when she joins the flock.

We hope that Evie continues to blossom, and enjoys a long happy life here at Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary.

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

Lacey

Lacey (sheep) Arrived 18th June 2017

Lacey was just a few days old when her mother passed away. We were contacted by her owners who desperately wanted to find her a good home. They wished they could raise her themselves, but as they owned large dogs, they were concerned for the safety of the orphaned lamb.

At first Lacey was not keen on suckling from a bottle, but she is slowly got the hang of it. Caring for her in the beginning involved bottle feeds all around the clock, and we took turns doing the night shift. Getting out of bed in the middle of the night isn’t fun, especially in winter, but seeing her sweet little face was so worth it.

When she first arrived, she was the only young lamb living at Happy Hooves. We introduced her to the two foster rabbits currently living here – Sophie and Selena, and they became her closest friends. They would touch noses, bounce and run around together.

Lacey spent her first week or two living inside the house, staying warm in front of the fireplace. When she got a little bigger she joined the other young lambs in the hospital pen. She has now moved into one of the isolation yards with the other lambs around her age, and young Jackson the kid. For now, that is where she will stay until she is big enough to join the flock.

Valentino is in Need of a New Home

 Location: Perth

A year ago, this stunning 5 year-old gelding ‘Valentino’ was purchased by his current owners for a pleasure ride. The young gelding was presented to them by the seller as sound. Unfortunately, after initial training by Karen White at Mohegan Centre and a vet report, it was discovered that he is lame and unable to be ridden in order to manage his pain levels and elongate his quality of life.

He has been diagnosed with performance limiting lameness associated with his lower joints of the right-front limb. He can no longer be ridden as this puts pressure on his back and joints causing him discomfort.

Valentino requires interaction with other horses, he needs companionship and stimulation otherwise he becomes depressed. He also requires a home with an experienced horse owner.

Prospective adopters will be offered full disclosure of vet reports and trainer reports and any information they require.

Valentino is a sweet boy, with a trusting and kind nature and loves a cuddle and a brush. He is also great with other animals; dogs, cats and other horses.

Valentino has been my first horse every! I am nervous around horses and I find that by spending time with Valentino, my confidence grows. He has an extraordinary ability to console and comfort me when I am walking with him, or around him.

Horse trainer Karen White, mentioned he would be a great ‘Healing horse,’ assisting disabled people, or those with a lack of confidence, as he is very smart and sensitive horse and acts accordingly with different people.

Valentino will be vaccinated and wormed before handover to his new family, and an adoption fee of $50 applies.
