Meet Skippy and Joey. A sad twist of fate saw this ovine duo’s world turned upside down when their human friend passed away, however kindness intervened and they were soon Edgar’s Mission-bound.
It’s safe to say, the kind heart who set out to seek a safe and happy outcome for Skippy and Joey hadn’t quite anticipated what lay in store. With loving forever homes for sheep few and far between, it was a chance referral to Edgar’s Mission that saw a lifeline thrown the girls’ way. However, Skippy and Joey hadn’t quite got the memo that we were indeed the good guys and it was only after some impressive fence-hurdling antics akin to that of their resident kangaroo friends (hence the names) that Skippy and Joey were eventually aboard our Kindness Van.
It is not only Skippy and Joey’s outwardly appearances that have transformed since their arrival. Having had the opportunity to settle into their new patch of the world, adjust to a new routine and with us now instead gently offering wheet bix treats as we pass by, the duo are beginning to realise that we are indeed the good guys. Skippy and Joey remind us of our undeniable duty to those we have tamed. They remind us simply;
“All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?”
