Our sheep have come from multiple sad backgrounds, some with hoarders and some with cruelty. I won’t dwell on that, because they sure don’t! Now that they’re free and healthy, have acres of safe paddock to graze, multiple barns for shelter, daily treats, a favourite spot under shady trees, are shorn, wormed and hooves trimmed at least 3 times a year, and receiving lots of love….they’re sooo happy! I just wish all sheep had the same wonderful life as our boys.
