Hazel came to us in March 2019 when she was just a little lamb of about six weeks old together with her twin sister Bailey.
While we do not normally purchase animals in order to rescue them from the intended purpose they were bred for, Hazel and her sister are an exception. We did, however, also try to purchase their mother. Though the breeder refused to enterain any offer we made.
Hazel's body is completely brown while her sister is mostly white. Because of her hazelnut color she was aptly named Hazel. This girl is very loving and sweet though a tiny bit smaller and more shy than her sister.
Hazel's life was supposed to end at Easter when she normally would have been slaughtered to end up on someone's plate. Please help us provide this wonderful girl with the best care possible for many years to come by sponsoring her and becoming a patron.
