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.
Liberty arrived at the Sanctuary in October 2016 at approx. 4 weeks of age. Her owners were struggling to care for her as she had a condition called ‘Lumpy wool’ which is a type of dermatitis. This was cleared up by antibiotics and she was soon partnered up with Jellybean.
Diva has lived at the Sanctuary for a number of years now. She was the seeing eye sheep for Blindy, the vision impaired sheep and helped her keep up with the flock and to find the hay.
