Adopt a Sheep

Hello, I'm Bob the sheep and you can adopt me!

I’m without a doubt the cheekiest member of the sheep flock here at Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary.

I was found when I was a tiny lamb, only a few hours old, wandering all alone on the side of a road. A kind passer-by took pity on me and brought me to Goodheart, where I was bottle-fed by hand until I built up my strength.

I now live with fellow rescued boys Teddy and Reg, grazing the lush pastures at the sanctuary and rushing over to greet visitors. If you’re kind enough to give me some fuss and treats, I’ll be your best friend forever!

Ever wondered how we care for our sheep? We give our sheep visual health checks twice a day, making sure to identify and isolate any individuals which may be under the weather so that we can give them immediate treatment. We also give our flock a thorough health check every 6 weeks, checking their condition and general health.

Bob was found all alone on the roadside with no other sheep to be seen. Since his arrival at Goodheart, he has proved to be a bright an inquisitive soul, keen to make friends with all the residents large or small.

Fascinating facts about sheep

Sheep are particularly brilliant at remembering familiar faces – they can identify their peers and human friends for a number of years.

Sheep are actually able to distinguish between different human emotions by reading our facial expressions.​

Sheep are reportedly good problem-solvers, with one flock in Yorkshire said to have figured out how to traverse a cattle grid by rolling over it on their backs!​
