Ambassadors come in all shapes and sizes and indeed species, as was found at the ever popular Lancefield Farmers Market on Saturday. Flying the flag for farm animals was the ever-popular Timmy Sheep from Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary. And he was on hand or rather hoof to happily greet his many friends, both old and new.
“Not only was it a beautiful day at the market and Timmy received lots of cuddles and scratches” said Timmy’s guardian and Edgar’s Mission Founder and Director, Pam Ahern, “But we were overwhelmed with the level of support from the local community for our relocation to the picturesque Lancefield”
Indeed Lancefield holds many special memories for Pam from her equestrian days when she would attend the now defunct Lancefield Horse Festival, held over two days in December. Pam proudly tells that it was here she won her novice rider class ‘many moons’ ago, and she still has the faded blue ribbon to prove it!
Pam, Timmy and all the Edgar’s Mission crew not only look forward to many more happy years in Lancefield but they too are eagerly awaiting the day when all their friends and supporters can visit the new farm on the outskirts of Lancefield and were we are sure many people will flock to say ‘hello Timmy’ at their official opening.
