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.
Billy Baggins came to the sanctuary in February 2017. He had been found in the backyard of a Big Ears volunteer, all alone, very young and very easy to catch. It was because of this that we initially thought there was something wrong with him but it turned out he was healthy, it may have been his nest was disturbed by predators.
It wasn’t long before we discovered Billy loved sitting and sleeping in a hammock. He spends a lot of the day in the hammock sleeping in the sun. He is very very friendly and just loves cuddle time with Jacqui.
