Please welcome Lilly our 4 week old blind calf .
Our newest addition to Freedom Hill Sanctuary arrived Friday 10th October. Lilly's fate is also her saviour because Lilly was born into a dairy farm, her future was bleak as all dairy calves are. Lilly was born totally blind and with luck the farmers wife felt some compassion and allowed us to give Lilly a forever bright future :-)
Being blind has not held our Helen (who is also blind) back who enjoys running and playing in the paddock and we hope once our little Lilly settles into her new forever home she will soon be out running in the paddock with Helen.
This weeks re casting of Rosa Parks front leg went well with almost a full extension of her leg now, but with no muscle tone as this leg has not been used Rosa Parks still cannot stand. We are hoping with the vets continued support we are able to help build muscle gradually and give Rosa Parks mobility in the front leg.
As the weather is getting warmer we have been activating our fire protections with a large burn off this week removing a lot of dead tree branches. With the wonderful help of the Mt Torrens CFS we were able to closely monitor the burn off along with the help of Teddy, BJ, Jacob, Trevor, Gene, Patrick, Annabelle, Flower & Bambi who could not help but investigate the area once cleared.
We hope to be able to purchase our first horse float in the near future as this has been one of our constant worries with summer approaching. We have been blessed to have a wonderful friends who have been busy making Teddy's Jam, Pearl's Jam, Dorothy Dukkah, & Dorrits Chutney to help fund the purchase of our float, if you would like to purchase these delicious jams please drop into Everything Vegan in Adelaide or online at www.veganonline.com.au every little bit helps!
If you care able to help out if needed for emergency evacuation could you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with information regarding transport trailers or horse floats, your location and availability, contact details etc would be awesome!
Have a fantastic week and thank you all so much for your continued support xxx
