Meet Clark Kent, now he may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and his running prowess certainly doesn’t match that of a speeding bullet, but it could well be said that our new woolly friend does have amazing powers. The greatest of which being his charm! Clarke Kent, a white dorper wether (castrated male sheep) is just so Super friendly. He, along with his ovine pals; Andrea (cheeky and inquisitive), Agnes (she’s the one with the very overshot jaw) and Arnold (he’s a black faced Suffolk) all found themselves hurtling through space looking for somewhere kind and welcoming to land. Okay a bit of an exaggeration, but they were in an outer Melbourne pound looking for a kind and welcoming place to call home nonetheless.
Sadly for animals, having the prefix ‘farm’ thrust upon them is their kryptonite. It strips them of legal protection from many acts of cruelty and causes them to fall under the kindness radar of many. But should it be a job for Superman to ensure that all animals have a life worth living? We think not! All it takes is for each and every one of us to stop for just a moment and see these gentle creatures as a ‘someone’ not a ‘something’. And that we are sure is something with which Superman would agree!!
