When Australian farm sanctuary Edgar’s Mission learned of a blind sheep, later named 64, living on an abandoned farm, rescuers knew they needed to give him a home. No one knows how the sheep ended up alone, but in spite of his blindness, this elderly sheep had managed to survive.
Once back at the shelter, the vet staff gave 64 a clean bill of health, the team set to work figuring out how to make his golden years the best possible.
To accommodate his blindness, volunteers leave 64’s food and water in the same spot every day. His friend Annabelle the sheep, wears a bell around her neck so she can lead the way for 64 around the grounds. To further make up for his lack of vision, sanctuary volunteers fashioned this gentle soul a “halo” designed to help blind dogs. Even with his fancy gear, 64’s fellow sheep don’t treat him any differently than they treat the other members of the herd — unless you count his seeing-eye sheep friend, Annabelle.
Edgar’s Mission is always willing to go to incredible lengths to help animals who have been dealt a bad hand in life. If you want to read about rescues, see more amazing videos, or meet more of the sanctuary residents, you can do so by visiting their official website.
