Lucy! (sponsored)
Lucy! (sponsored)

Lucy is a Targhee sheep who has a wonderful, next to the skin soft fleece! She is a big girl and was a 'throw away' sheep after the flock she lived with bred her before she was even 1, and when her first lamb was born, the ligament that holds her tummy in place (inside) was torn and not able to be repaired- no more lambs for Lucy, but we are so glad she got here instead of somewhere worse (which was where she was headed....).

The only way you know Lucy has any troubles is she has a bit of a lopsided tummy- if you see her from the front anyway. She is still shy but has learned about treats so is more trusting. I doubt she will ever be 'tame' but that is fine, we are happy if she is happy!

We worry that Lucy will get thumped too hard in the tummy by another sheep but our vet said to let her be happy, and she has lost some weight (good for her back/side) and is doing just that, being a happy sheep- with a 'mom' (me) watching her every move- kind of like when your baby starts riding a bike with out training wheels? ;0) Yey Lucy!

2015- Lucy is now a senior sheep in our flock and she is a little slower now getting up. To protect her & her tummy from the rowdy sheep, we moved her in with the senior/special needs group.

When we got Lucy, our wonderful vet said she would live about 2 years. We accepted that because Lucy had issues that could not be fixed. We wanted her to enjoy and be happy for whatever time she would have with us.

Guess how old she is now?? 10! Go Lucy my sweet!
