Jellybean was located on the side of the road on the Midlands Highway in September 2016. He was orphaned from his mother and was approx. 1 day old. The person who located him knocked on the farmers door and informed him of the lamb, but was told to take him as the farmer had too many lambs to deal with.
Jellybean came to the Sanctuary where he was very ill for some time due to not getting the colostrum from his mother. He was on antibiotics and electrolytes and cared for intensively by Big Ears volunteers Ros and Holly who nursed him back to health.
On the 26th December 2016, Jellybean sadly passed away after becoming sick on Christmas Eve.
Daisy the goat came to the sanctuary in December 2015. Her previous owner who was moving house had rescued her from a tether. You can still see where the collar of the tether had cut into Daisy’s neck and the skin had started to grow around it.
Daisy is a friendly and trusting goat who is now really enjoying being free with other goats to play with,
Billy Bob came to the sanctuary in 2010. He was a chattel in the sale of a property, essentially coming with the property like light fittings and curtains. It reinforces the concept as animals being ‘property’.
Billy Bob was an escape artist and caused his new owners a lot of worry. Since being at the sancyuary he has been the head of the goat herd and is happy to stay put.
Billy Bob passed away in 2016.
Blindy has lived at the Sanctuary for a number of years now. As her name suggests, Blindy is vision impaired and she relies on her best friend and seeing eye sheep Diva, to help her keep up with the flock and to find the hay.
Sadly Blindy passed away on the 12th December 2015. She was put to sleep at the vets after her breathing became laboured as a result of a respiratory infection.
