Last month we received a call for assistance
through a volunteer, alerting us to a very overgrown sheep on a horse property
north of Perth. Affectionately named ‘Shauna’, this little ewe with no
identification had strayed onto the property and taken
up residence for a couple of years. She was reluctant to be yarded, despite her huge coat,
and many months passed as authorities deemed her capture a difficult job to
tackle. With some quick coordination, volunteers Tom, Hayley and Teresa
championed a plan and met with Shauna’s caretakers on their property. After much chasing, diving and weaving, Shauna was
captured and safely in transit, on her way to a new haircut and a new life at the
Sanctuary. Shauna settled in for a time and then shearer Brad did his magic, removing her 17 kilogram fleece to reveal a new ewe!
the current cool weather and her being clipped for the first time, Shauna was dressed in a
new tailored sheep jacket! We can’t wait for Shauna to meet her new sheep friends!
