Oliver Arrival Date: June 2015 Oliver is the founding member of SoulSpace. He is an Old English Babydoll sheep and was rescued from a farm selling him for butcher meat. George was brought home to SoulSpace shortly after Oliver arrived and the two bonded immediately. They have not left each other's side since.
George Arrival Date: June 2015 George and Frederick were rescued from deplorable conditions from a backyard butcher in WI. Illness was rampant at this farm and his mother died during labor. George has thrived at SoulSpace. He is gentle, playful and adores bananas and his best buddy, Oliver.
Frederick Arrival Date: June 2015 Frederick was rescued with George from a horrific backyard butcher. Frederick's mother died before he was due so he is small compared to Georgie. Frederick was raised with a litter of puppies who chewed his left ear off, along with part of his right ear. Frederick came to SoulSpace at about 9 months old and clearly thinks he is a dog. He will follow you wherever you go and is thrilled when our rescue beagle lets him chase her around the yard.
Junie, Genevive, Ivy, Maddie, Ellen, Chelsea, & Stormie Birthday: June 1, 2015 These seven sisters have been a lively addition to the farm. They each have their own personality and have no fear of hopping on a shoulder or a lap and snuggling in. The sheep love the hens and the hens love the sheep. Brock is undecided. ;) We have faith he will warm up soon!
Mikey, Ms.Ferard Arrival Date: November 2015 SoulSpace welcomed two, 8 week old kittens to the farm in November of 2015. Two sisters, Their names were chosen by 13 year old Noelle, SoulSpace's future summer camp leader. The kittens love exploring the barns and the farm's giant,150 year old trees. They have been an entertaining addition to SoulSpace!
Brock Arrival Date: December 2015 Brock is SoulSpace's newest resident. The original owner purchased him from a mini pig breeder, with the promise that he would not exceed 30 lbs. Brock is currently 3 years old and over 100 lbs. So many 'mini' pigs are surrendered every year due to breeders making false claims about the size and needs of these intelligent and ever curious animals. When we got Brock home to SoulSpace, we quickly realized he had no interest in sharing the sheep barn with the current residents. Brock definitly likes his own space! He has been temporarily living in the hen house, where he burrows under 4 feet of straw each night. We can't wait to make Brock his own pig pen this Spring.
