Sheep Ahoy Animal Rescue take in sheep with very unique needs and these special needs sheep need extra care and attention at shearing time with some needing to be sheared earlier than others or twice a year. It is difficult to get shearers to come at either short notice or for just one sheep. Some sheep would also benefit from being sheared standing up as laying them down can be distressing for them due to breathing or mobility problems, for example, Peppa with her facial injury and PipSqueak with her mobility issues.
The purchase of rechargeable shearing clippers at a cost of £249.99 would allow the team to shear individual sheep when required and where there is no power, i.e. out in the field.
