Lily the lamb was becoming a bit of a nuisance, munching on Jack's vegetable garden. He had thought he could shut her into the front garden to eat the lawn, but hadn't reckoned on her bleating loudly when she couldn't see him! The lady who was supplying us with milk for Lily suggested we take her to 'Healing with Horses', a local version of riding for the disabled. Our neighbour works with Healing with Horses and it was all arranged in a flash and a blur. We took her out to their place on Friday afternoon. It felt like leaving a child at boarding school as she cried when we left, but you can see from the photos that she has settled down well. Apparently "Lily is already capturing everyone's hearts and showing great potential as a therapy sheep". So That's Alright Best Beloved, to quote Rudyard Kipling.
PS I do have permission to use the photos.
What a neat purpose for one who might not have made it!! :)ReplyDelete

I am sure you will miss her, but now she has a new and wonderful life helping people, not heard of a therapy sheep before,ReplyDelete
I'm glad Lily is settling in. I'm sure she felt like a child being dropped at boarding school too :)ReplyDelete
