Blossom the lamb
4/7/16We have just returned from collecting this beautiful little girl
We received a phone call this morning from a farmer who wanted to find somewhere that would give this little lamb a chance. She is not using her legs at present due to hitting a wall during worming.
Lets all keep our fingers crossed that we can help this beautiful girl, and that she will survive to grow up with little willow.
We will let you know what our vets say.
Poor Blossom that came into us after hitting a wall is not showing much improvement. She needs very intensive care everyday which involves moving her into different positions, making sure she can get to water and food and massaging her legs.
She is alert and bright in herself and is showing more movement in her front legs. If there is no further improvement in a few weeks the awful decision will have to be made as Blossom will not have a quality of life if she cannot get around. This is one of the horrible things about running an animal sanctuary!
Lets pray that Blossom shows some improvement over the next week.
Little Willow the lamb that came in with crooked legs a few weeks ago is doing amazingly well. She has had her splints removed and is full of life running and jumping around the yard in a very sweet and wobbly kind of way! She is improving all the time and we are confident she will be able join our flock in the future. She is best friends with willow. Flossie and Freddie. The disabled sheep family!
HOPE FOR BLOSSOM THE LAMB
Blossom the little lamb that came in with a head injury has shown signs of improvement since she has started on new medication. Her front legs are now in full use. Her back legs are still showing no sign of life. The plan is to put Blossom in a wheelchair so she can get herself around with her front legs. An incredibly kind sanctuary in the manchester area has offered us a wheelchair for her, that was previously used for one of their disabled sheep called Buster who is now not in need of it. We will be making arrangements in the next few days to go and collect the wheelchair and will keep you updated on little Blossoms progress.
Blossom has full use of her front legs but unfortunately no use in her rear legs. Thanks to an extremely kind sanctuary in Cheshire there is now hope for Blossom. Clough animal sanctuary has donated a sheep wheelchair that was used for one of their disabled sheep that no longer needs it.
We will keep you updated on her progress.
Blossoms first outing in her new wheelchair went very well.
Flossie update and the disabled sheep family
UPDATE ON FLOSSIE. PLEASE HELP US RAISE THE FUNDS FOR HER PROSPHETIC LEG.
FLOSSIE APPEAL FOR A PROSPHETIC LEG.
We have had fantastic news that a prosphetic leg can be made for dear Flossie. The cost of this will be £2200.
Thanks to some wonderful supporters who raised an amazing £750 we are moving in the right direction.
Please help us raise the rest and get Flossie out of her stable and into her very own paddock with her new husband Freddie.
Flossie is now doing so well she has started to go out into the cow paddock with Freddie and Willow for a few hours a day.
She is now ready for her prosphetic leg.
HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS ALREADY CONTRIBUTED.
