December 15, 2015: Kyle and Ronaldo have gone their separate ways and Ronaldo now spends his days with the other three gals. He has come to love them and a perfect home would be for the four of them to live together in green pastures with a loving family to enjoy their interactions and personalities.
July 5 2014: Kyle has received a haircut and his hoovers are trimmed up nicely. Underneath all that wool was a wonderful ram personality. More playful and trusting, Kyle is on his way to forgetting his situation of neglect and looking more toward a pleasing future. Ronaldo has been sheared and has gained his confidence. These two spend time head butting and exploring their paddock in wonderment at the fresh grass and breeze that moves across their skin. Hard to think of them cooped up in such conditions for so long. Kyle and Ronaldo are inseparable and Happy Trails would like to see these guys adopted together. Please help us to find them a wonderful home.
Five horses, nine sheep. From a dilapidated barn in Ashtabula County, Happy Trails assisted the local humane officer in rescuing these animals from one of the most horrific sites in recent history. All of the horses were locked in stalls, knee deep in manure with no hope of being able to reach the lush grass just beyond their barred windows to the outside.
Kyle is one of two recognizable rams that were rescued on the two day operation in Ashtabula. He was the easier of the two to ‘guide’ to the trailer considering his horns! He was three times his size with years of unsheared wool and his hooves were an inexcusable length. He spent the first few nights cowering with his buddy in a small paddock with a private tent and has become more trusting as the volunteers work on his recovery. Ronaldo is the second. His wool was peeling back from his body; an indication of severe illness and fever at some point during his two year imprisonment. He put up some resistance but made his way to the trailer and rode with Kyle and the seven other sheep to the sanctuary for his new start.
