Thank God for the good people at Farm will truly be rewarded. Does she let you pet her?


I took many photos of Lucky Lady 2 years ago when I was at the FS in August. I got right next to her and took photos of us together. She was quite calm and sweet and I petted her softly when I bent down for photos. She was really sweet and docile and it was just a couple of months after her rescue. I felt so lucky in being able to share a few minutes with her. Sheep are so special and adorable.

What a wonderful story & beautiful photos! I sponsor Lucky Lady at the farm, and I am looking forward to finally meeting her this summer! She is a perfect example of an animal's spirit & will to overcome and live in peace.


We can learn so much from animals!


Beautifully written!


I learned about Farm Sanctuary when Lucky Lady escaped- thank goodness!- down the street from where I worked in the South Bronx. Following her story and its very happy ending was so moving that I will always have a very special place in my heart for Farm Sanctuary and, of course, for Lucky Lady who opened my eyes to the good that can be done for exploited animals everywhere. I will now do anything I can to put an end to live markets in the city, which are an assault on the animals and the residents who are forced to be exposed to cruel and brutal industry in neighborhoods.

Any live markets on the Upper East Side? What about Park Slope? I seriously doubt it! Few people really want these places around and the poor get stuck with them. Just another example of how the food animal industry is exploitative to the most marginalized people as well as to the animals. Thank you, Farm Sanctuary for all that you do to bring about an end to this cruelty!


That last photo of Lucky Lady is just lovely. What a sweetie.
