Gordon Lambsy came to Little Oak Sanctuary as a three-week-old lamb. This little Merino babe was found at around three days old near horse paddocks - he had either been orphaned or rejected by his mother. The farmer told Gordon's rescuers that he would "knock him on the head" as he didn't have time to care for him, so the kind family took him in. Gordon is a laid back, quiet fellow who fitted into the flock amazingly well. He grew up with other lamb buddies, Ondine Shermaan, Brigitte Baardot, Baabee & Shaun. Gordon is the current record holder for the longest tail at the sanctuary!

Help Protect Sheep
Far from how they are commonly portrayed, sheep are highly intelligent individuals who will form friendships with particular other sheep. Despite their gentle nature and capacity to suffer as any other animal, sheep aren't protected by the same laws as dogs and cats. 'Codes of Practice' side-step the rules, meaning that painful procedures can be undertaken without pain relief, and their lives are routinely ended well before their natural lifespan has been reached. It doesn't have to be this way.
When you sponsor a Little Oak lamb or sheep you will be helping protect all sheep. Your sponsorship will support Little Oak's essential advocacy work – sharing the stories of individual sheep and the plight of their kind across the nation.
Sponsor today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about sheep through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly sponsors. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for the sheep at Little Oak, and their kind across Australia.
