For years, Joan always had a friend by her side. She lived in a loving home, with ample room and care…and flock-mates. Last year, Joan became an adoptive mother to Lamby whose biological mother had died.
Lamby passed suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving Joan bereft and alone. Her caregivers could not bear the thought of Joan being by herself so they reached out to Animal Place.
We welcomed Joan and she recently finished her quarantine and met her new flock. Our hope is that she will become best friends with fellow Shetland Sheep, Jett, who was rescued several years ago after kids tied her to a flagpole. Jett has been a loner ever since.
And while the stereotype that black sheep are “outsiders” is true for Jett (self-imposed, by the way), Joan walked confidently into the flock as if she always belonged.
