In 2008 beautiful Dusty was hand reared by Jacqui from a baby when his mum managed to sneak a nest of eggs past us and they all hatched. Dusty must have been a day late and mum had left him to die whilst looking after the other ducklings. Jacqui actually pulled shell off him and moved him straight inside with her not expecting him to live. He still thinks Jacqui is his Mum.
Smudge arrived at Big Ears on the 19th July 2017. He had been hand raised and very spoilt but his owners had to find him a new home. He was born in May 2013 as part of a school breeding program. He is very gentle and loves a cuddle. He gets on well with Scallywag and Albert his new paddock mates and loves lucerne chaff. He also has the biggest eyes we have ever seen on a goat.
Mrs Slocombe was named after her beautiful hair, although this Mrs Slocombe needs no hair spray or styling products.
She is a special girl who would be happy to serve at the counter, as long as she was selling her favourite foods, sunflower seeds and corn on the cob.
Licorice came to Big Ears in 2015 after being rescued from the Hobart RSPCA. It had been determined that she wouldn’t find a home as she was very timid and elusive. She now lives with her big white partner rabbit Terry.
