Simon joined the Hopefield family, when we received a call from a gentleman who had bought some sheep to graze his land, not realising that one was pregnant. One morning, he went to the field and was shocked to discover Simon and his twin brother! Sadly, his twin was stillborn and mum had rejected Simon. Rejected lambs are very common in the farming industry and many die from being left to fend for themselves, or not being found in time.
Luckily for Simon, this was not the case. As soon as he arrived at the sanctuary (at one day old), he was given some lovely, warm lamb milk replacer and a heat pad to help prevent him from getting pneumonia. He was seen by the vet for treatment on his eyes due to an infection, and was hand raised by our sanctuary staff.
He is proving to be a real character!
