Animal Spotlight: Sherman
Sherman came to Heartland in the summer of 2016. He was rescued as a tiny baby lamb from a backyard butcher in a neighboring city who was illegally keeping two lambs on his property. Unfortunately, by the time authorities arrived, it was too late for the other lamb. Only Sherman was able to make it out alive. Sherm (who was named by our summer campers) had a rough start in his very short life, but a stroke of luck landed him at his forever home at Heartland. Shortly after arriving at Heartland, Sherman went in for his neuter surgery. Complications quickly turned this routine surgery into an emergency, and we weren’t sure Sherman would make it. Thanks to fantastic veterinary care and lots of love, Sherman made a full recovery. We’re so thankful to be able to watch him grow and explore the Heartland pastures.
