Little Fanta was found in a pasture in Australia strewn with dead sheep after a nasty wolf attack. The farmer had given up on her, thinking that she wouldn’t survive much longer being now injured and so young.
But little Fanta proved him wrong.
Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary took the baby lamb in to give her care.
Because Fanta had been pressed down to the ground so long, her sense of balance was off and she was not able to walk when she was first discovered.
With the help of a chopped-up shopping bag, Fanta was able to stand. Pam Ahern, founder of Edgar’s Mission, fashioned a sort of harness for Fanta so she could practice standing with the help of the bag.
It gave Fanta the confidence that she could indeed stand upright and move her legs around.
It was frustrating for Fanta, Ahern said, because she obviously wanted to run around and play, as all little lambs do, but her body just was not cooperating.
But with Fanta’s persistence, along with good nutrition and care, she gained the strength to first stand, and then walk on her own four feet.
Soon enough she was able to not just walk, but run and jump and play with all the other farm animals.
“Animals like little Fanta give me so much hope and inspiration,” Ahern said.
