Sir William Wallace
He got his name because he survived an incredible surgery. The team had sorted him out of a flock in the spring of 2019 with a huge abscess on his face. Then at the clinic, the doctors saw that this abscess had already eaten a huge hole all the way into his oral cavity. They operated for 4 hours and he recovered. However, he needs to be watched constantly so they can see in case there are problems with the abscess again, since they couldn’t pinpoint the cause.
Friendship and loyalty – Wooly and Sir William Wallace
Both born in 2018 and male = A death sentence, enforceable after fattening, long agonizing transport to the slaughterhouse, or without anesthesia neck cutting during slaughter. Both of them could be brought to safety on the life farm. However, their health was affected by the fattening, so both were since last year in the “Schafie Care Group” on the farm. For many weeks they were already together in the treatment paddock and became close friends. Friendship still counts for something with sheep, because they are honest and unbiased. Then Wooly got an eye infection and was in the “eye group” so as not to infect others. It was so moving because Sir William never moved from the fence. He always stayed close, even though he could go out into the big meadow. He is always there, a friend you can count on. Dzhamiliya, on behalf of the team, says: “We don’t want a life without sheep anymore, we learn so much from them”.
