Archy arrived into care after he was sadly rejected by his mum at only 2 days old. This is something we unfortunately often see in the case of twins and triplets. Often the poor mum just cannot cope with looking after more than the one baby she was designed to have. We are happy to say that Archy is strong, healthy, curious and full of beans. He is a tiny lamb, at only 2.4kg on arrival, but with a personality in direct contrast. As soon as he could, he was hopping around his carer’s loungeroom and introducing himself to everyone he met. Archy’s carer is looking forward to watching his cheeky personality continue to shine.
Charlie Brown arrived to be a friend for Archy after finding himself alone and lost in a paddock, rejected by his mum. He loves to nibble on Archy’s ears, explore his surroundings and hang out with his other friend, Snoopy.
Lynnie came from a beautiful home where she was incredibly loved. Although her human family loved her dearly, lambs as flock animals do not like to be alone. Lynnie was finding it increasingly difficult being separated from her human carers when they were not at home. A very hard decision was made, but one that her human family knew was in her best interests.
Alanna arrived into our care after experiencing a loss that we wish on no lamb. After spending the first four weeks of her life happily in the care of her mum, Alanna suddenly found herself an orphan. Her mum had contracted an illness about which we have no details save that it took her life over a very short period of time, leaving the young Alanna alone and distraught. We are pleased to say Alanna settled in well with her new friends Archy, Charlie Brown and Lynnie.
