Cowart's Common Room
Kilmeedy Lodge Animal Sanctuary

All the animals have been brought in for the winter , as of today. The young lambs are confused and all huddled in a group at the gate, waiting to go out to the fields. Since they were born in February, that gate has never been shut, and they have been able to come and go, to and fro from the yard, and sheds, just as they pleased.

The older sheep, goats, donkeys, and Silas my huge white horse, who have been here for years, know the procedure now, but it's new to the 'young 'uns'. and they can't understand why they can't go out, as normal.

They will get used to it...

TIGGYWINKLE's Avatar I can just see them all snuggling up for the winter.! How many animals have you at the sanctuary Sue? It must be a lot of hard, but rewarding work.I'm sure the lambs will settle easily. We used to have a few ewes and lambs, when we lived in the country. It was a lovely time for the children, and brings back happy memories.

Hi Tiggywinkle,

If you want to have a look at the animals, and see them all, you can visit the website

I haven't updated the Newsletter in ages. I must do that, but the photos are all there.

Frances's Avatar Good evening to you Sue,

Do you think that the animals actually give cues to each other about what the changes of season might be about to offer? Haven't really every thought about this myself, city dweller that I am.
