Louise, a sheep rescued by Farm Sanctuary, is in for double trouble.
Farm Sanctuary announced on Facebook that she just gave birth to twin boys, and now all her time on the farm will be dedicated to keeping them out of trouble. According to WENY News, Louise was rescued by the Watkins Glen farm only about a month ago, with two other sheep who are also now frolicking on the farm, Tracey and John. They had been severely neglected: they were emaciated and lice-ridden, according to the farm’s blog. Both Tracey and Louise were pregnant, so Farm Sanctuary knew that if they didn’t get proper care soon, neither the moms or their lambs would make it.
But, thanks to Farm Sanctuary, they have made a wonderful recovery, and then Tracey gave birth to Hazelton. Obviously Louise didn’t want her friend to have all the fun, so she doubled hers with her two unnamed little ones.
If it hadn’t been for Farm Sanctuary, Louise and Tracey would’ve spent their last days in horrible care.
And, if they had given birth in their past conditions or in the modern agricultural industry, they would’ve been split up from their families forever — their calves sold and condemned as food for “fine” dining.
But now they can live out their days in peace, trying to keep these three boys in line while still leaving time to gossip about the happenings on the rest of the farm.
And knitting warm clothes for the growing little ones. Very important!
Being a mother is truly a hard day’s work.
