All of the odds were stacked against Krystal from the beginning of her life. Born on a local commercial farm, blind and rejected by her Mom. Thankfully, the farmer and his wife took pity on this sweet baby girl.
They brought her inside, bottle fed her and began looking for someone to take over her care and keep her protected.
Once we got her, we immediately scheduled her with specialists at UT. Unfortunately, Krystal was born with out pupils and nothing could fix that for her. But that has not slowed down our girl in the least.
We rescued a friend for her immediately and she has been enjoying her life at 4Them ever since. She now has 3 friends that live with her and they all look out and protect her. She's funny, sassy at times, so innocent but don't think you are going to sneak anything by her, she hears a pin drop. We love this sweet girl so very much.
Soon after rescuing Krystal, we got a local call about a lamb that was rejected by Mom. A local family had saved him and wanted to nurse him back to health and then bring him to 4Them to be a companion to our sweet blind Krystal.
He was so tiny, there was a question if he would even be able to pull through. He was bottle-fed and with wonderful care, he survived. Soon, Kit was coming to his forever life at 4Them.
Kit and Krystal became the best of friends right away. Kit wore a bell on his collar at first, so Krystal could always find him. They were inseparable and this worked exactly as we planned.
Today, Kit has 3 ladies he watches out for.
He gets super excited for visitors and loves to come out in the big pasture to graze, like the big boy he truly is. He gets that little gallop that turns into a hop and that head starts moving, you know he's all excited and happy. Nothing makes me happier to see him loving his life.
Kit is an absolute joy and we are so thankful to have him in our rescue family.
We were contacted by the proprietor of a rescue in Nashville, who said that she might have been blind and had been surrendered by a local and that she was in need of immediate placement. She is definitely not blind, but she does have an underdeveloped optic nerve. She gets around just fine today. She loves hanging out with her herd and hiding in the brush in their enclosure.
Kay came from the same farm that Krystal came from, the owner of the farm called us saying that he had a sheep that they were not able to breed because she was weak in her back legs. They were going to send her to slaughter. They gave us the opportunity to save her life, and of course, we couldn't say no. Today, Kay is always right by Krystal's side, guiding her and protecting her from any uncomfortable situations.
