Sheep Sven

We get most of the young lambs every year before the Easter holidays. The young lambs are born and sometimes rejected by the mama sheep because she has too many young and too little milk, because the sheep are too weak or even disabled. They are left lying around and do not get any milk from the mama sheep. Actually, they should die, but many of the farmers who then call us naturally want to help the sheep. In August of this year, another baby sheep was supposed to need help.

Sven - he is black as night and soft as a ball of wool

Two animal-loving hikers found little Sven all alone in a meadow, trapped in a fence. Far and wide there was no mother sheep to be seen. The sheep, only a few hours old, must have somehow rolled down the slope and was then stopped at a fence. Sven was carefully freed and the two ladies searched for the flock of sheep. The flock did not accept the young-born sheep and the mother sheep could not be found out in the flock.

They tracked down the farmer and he gave them permission to take the sheep. The rescuers took Sven to their hotel room and contacted Gut Aiderbichl.

On a mercy farm it is a coming and going

A few weeks ago, all the animal keepers were deeply saddened because the little sheep Lia died. Now another newborn sheep was looking for saving hands.
Dying and new life belong together - unfortunately, people are often still too deep in grief when a new animal in need of help is taken in. Maybe it was black Sven's job to make the animal keepers smile again after Lia's death?

A young animal life needs help every hour

The animal keepers and also employees from the administration of Gut Aiderbichl took Sven home with them after work. He had to get his bottle every hour. No one minded that he soiled the flat sometimes - we wanted to get him through. Sven thanked his humans for their efforts with a soft, happy bleat.

Things are looking up for Sven - he is always hungry

Mother's milk is always the most important for the immune system in humans and animals. Sven sucks on our trousers and jackets - he always likes something to eat.

Afterwards, of course, he is tired and hides his head under his jacket. He likes to cuddle and loves to be stroked all day long.
In his stable, Sven snuggles on a thick straw bed and as soon as you call him, he lifts his little head and makes a loud noise.

Tentative run on the farm at Gut Aiderbichl Henndorf

When all the donkeys, ponies, pigs and goats are in the stable at feeding time, the stable door opens for our little Sven. He loves to walk around the farm with his animal keepers and even looks curiously at the camels.

For whatever reason Sven, who is only a few hours old, was hanging in the fence - he had two great rescuers and we are now confident that Sven will grow up to be a happy, fun-loving sheep. In a few days he will join Peterle, Larry and Ben in the group and then he will also have found a family.

Sven's rescue was a coincidence, there is no other way to describe it, because when hikers passed a sheep pasture, they found little Sven next to the hiking trail. It was obvious that the little lamb had not yet...
