Freckles, Maitri, Mitou, Poppy and Smudge came to Wishing Well Sanctuary from a university where they were rescued by Animal Alliance after being used to train students to perform surgical procedures. They were slightly skittish when they first arrived on October 26, 2011, but have mellowed considerably since that day.
Freckles is their leader and always seem to be the first to approach visitors. The sheep had never seen grass or pasture before they came to Wishing Well Sanctuary as they were kept indoors the entire time in a sterile environment. When they first arrived at the Sanctuary they seemed genuinely puzzled by the green stuff on the ground.
