Upside Down Sheep
Upside Down Sheep
This ewe was lying on her back with her legs in the air just next to the footpath from Lower Burton to Charminster. I rescued her by gently rolling her over on to her feet and she toddled away extremely unsteadily to join the other members of the flock who had been ignoring her completely in her distress but became very interested as soon as we became involved. Sheep should always be rolled over onto their feet as they cannot do it themselves and they can die.
Some of the houses in Charminster are visible in the background.
