Never Too Old for Kindness
She is almost as old as the hills she could not see, but one look at this dear lady told us she was never too old for kindness.
It was late yesterday afternoon when we took the call about a sheep whose plight could only be classed as critically urgent. Alone in a large paddock he was seen to incessantly circle, with her wool overgrown and her time on this earth quickly fading.
Racing to beat the latter as well as sunset, it took no time to decipher our new friend from the many lichen-covered rocks in the area she could readily be mistaken for – they did not move, but she did!
Moving stoically across the paddock and into our hearts, it was her mouth, with its three sentinel-like and stubby teeth, that gave Methuselah her name. Burdened down by many years of unshorn wool – that was even growing grass – we could only imagine how terrifying life had been for this prey animal.
But that time is now behind her, as soon will be that fleece, so Methuselah can look forward to an entire new world of kindness, because as the saying goes: one is never too old for kindness.

Dust bathing for the first time in her 73-week life is Katie. Her “sister”, Kayla, eagerly watching on as her blind friend kicks dirt every which way.
When the cheeky young goat we have named Purr broke his leg in a remote community, things were looking grim.

Amazing us all just recently was the arrival of four teeny tiny turkeys: Cornelius, Tofurkey, Curious George and Cheerio.
Planting the seeds of kindness were the sweet natures of Hawthorn, Poppy and Tulip, young sheep who touched the heart of a kindly pound worker.
From this moment to the next, we grow and change. Yet we stay who we are. We are shaped by our experiences but not defined by them.
