Myrtle, Rowan & Remi

Myrtle came from our largest mammal rescue in our history, when we saved 42 sheep from horrific cruelty and neglect at a nearby slaughter operation in Fall 2022. Myrtle was among many of the adult sheep who suffered from extreme emaciation, high parasite counts, and hoof rot. We also suspect Myrtle is a bit older than some of the others, meaning she has unfortunately been exploited for breeding for a long time. She was also one of the 8 females we determined to be pregnant at the time of their arrival— she gave birth two twins, Rowan (male) and Remi (female) on December 4th, 2022. Because Myrtle was still recovering from a lifetime of neglect, she had a hard time nursing both babies, so Remi, the smaller of the twins, had to be bottle and tube fed by our staff for her first few weeks. These siblings are playful and curious, and love to climb on humans and their mama! Myrtle is a bit of a grumpy old lady— but we love her for exactly who she is.
