While she couldn’t be happier now, life was not always so kind to beautiful Persia. When she was born in 2004, her mother wouldn’t allow her to nurse and so she was she written off as a lost cause by the farmer who “owned” her. Refusing to give the little sheep the care that she needed, the farmer planned to let her die or take her to slaughter. Thankfully, Persia was rescued by a kind animal control officer in the nick of time and brought to our California Shelter instead. As she grew, Persia (named for talented actress and dedicated Farm Sanctuary supporter Persia White) charmed everyone with her upbeat attitude and became a favorite amongst staff and visitors alike! Now about six years old, she truly knows how to squeeze every last drop of joy out of life and spends most of her time exploring, napping in piles of straw, and basking in the sun. In this stunning portrait, Persia reaches the crest of a hill in her pasture, looking as though she were on top of the world.
