Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie, is a 7-year-old Suffolk ewe and Clyde, a 5-year-old wether, is her paddock buddy. Originally pets, they were given to a farmer and became part of a flock. Recently they were listed on Gumtree so we quickly swung into action to contact the farmer and secure their safety. Despite Bonnie’s growing years she arrived pregnant, although we do not yet have confirmation of when her lamb will be born. Now she is in our care Bonnie will be able to keep her lamb with her for the remainder of her life instead of suffering the heart break of having her baby taken from her as she has every year since giving birth to her first lamb. Both sheep were very scared on arrival but are settling in quickly with our special needs flock. They discovered the joys of weetbix and friendly scratches behind the ears.
