Two orphan lambs have found a new home in North Wales. Daisy and Wilma are settling in at Llwyngwian Fawr, a residential service supporting individuals with learning disabilities and mental health needs near Dyffryn Ardudwy, North Wales, run by care provider Regard.
Four individuals with learning difficulties and mental health problems with complex behaviours live at the service where they have the opportunity to grow vegetables and look after the animals at the small holding, which is set in six acres of hillside.
Manager Karen Hills said: “Daisy was orphaned at a nearby farm and one of our staff heard about her so we were delighted that she could come here and receive the care she needs. We thought she needed company and a family who have been looking after Wilma brought her in so that we now have the two lambs.
“It is the first time we have had lambs here and the individuals who use the service are delighted to be helping to rear them by bottle feeding. It is part of the therapeutic care that we provide and can help those with disabilities to lead worthwhile and valued lives.”
Daisy and Wilma will join the other birds and animals that are cared for at Llwyngwian Fawr, which include four goats, two ducks, a goose, two cockerels and some chickens. The next project is to providing adequate fencing for the area that the lambs will live in and everyone is involved in developing this area.
