Elsa and Francesca are two ten month old lambs who were originally raised as meat animals, but whose owner became attached to them and arranged for them to come to us, rather than being sent to slaughter. They are bold and curious, and a lively addition to the barn!
Brothers Ringo and George, two French Alpine goats, seized from a farm by the Montreal SPCA due to neglect, they were covered in mange when they came to us. Healthy and full of spirit, they are our female goat Rita’s constant companions, when they aren’t busy getting up to something!
Rita, a female Nubian/French Alpine cross came to us from a goat farm in Western Canada, where they raise goats for meat. They couldn’t bring themselves to send Rita to slaughter, and instead arranged to have her sent all the way to us! If you meet Rita, you will know why. She is bursting with spirit and personality!
James, a Leicester ram, came to us from the Montreal SPCA with a lovely ewe whom we named Herriot. They were both left in a field to fend for themselves. Unfortunately Herriot succumbed to a pre-existing illness shortly after arriving, but for a few months she knew much kindness and love. James, because he is not neutered lives separately within the barn outside enclosure with our two male pekin ducks. He is just so handsome (and he knows it!)
Grainy and Rose our female sheep, who came with Jolly our male sheep, from an elderly couple who could no longer care for them. They are such gentle individuals who love attention. They will come to you, given a chance, and stand there while you gently stroke their faces and look at their lovely eyes! They were obviously well cared previously
Jolly, our elderly male sheep, succumbed to old age, having lived several years longer than his breed usually do. All who got to meet Jolly will be forever touched by his gentle and loving spirit. He was so special, and will stay in our hearts forever. Jolly, we will always miss you!
