A lucky escape — 15 Comments

  1. Gosh, what a lucky rescue. For a minute or two there I feared the tale may not have a happy ending. Well done you; hope both you and the ewe lamb are fully recovered from your ordeals.

  2. Wow–what a story! That little thing was lucky to have you find her. When we were in Ireland once, we drove by a sheep with its horn entangled in a wire fence–I made my husband stop the car and save it!

  3. They say these things come in 3’s … better stay close to home a little longer 🙂 So glad the little lamb made it and to see you up and about too 🙂 Laura

  4. J > I’d already got splits in the ‘corners’ of my thumbs and some fingers, but the pressure of forcing the wire made them much much worse, and I got deep punctures as well thrown into the bargain. But nothing that won’t mend. The lamb is now keeping up with the others fine, so that’s a job well done, isn’t it! Keeping animals is a privilege and a responsibility, and this is where we pay them back for what we take.

  5. I haven’t owned many animals thus far, but it is always heartbreaking and hard on the nerves to have one injured. How did your hands hold up, pulling on the barbed wire?

  6. Wow, sounds like you got to her just in time. Poor thing! Glad she is up and about already, and no bloating from being immobile for so long. It’s always something!
