Hey everyone, I’m Gertie!
I was rescued by Idlewild, along with my Sister Wilma! We were rescued by Idlewild from going to market. We used to spend a lot of time in an indoor barn which was thick in poop. When we tried to lie down, we would get covered in it; it was yuk! The staff at Idlewild really look after us, they feed us really tasty food twice a day and give us haylage (which is my favourite. Apart from apples, I LOVE apples!). In between all these delicious snacks, we can graze in our field as much as we like. We spend most of the day eating or sleeping and sometimes we chase each other round. We have had our very own shelter built in our field that we can use when the weather is bad, but we don’t get shut in anymore. We are very happy to be at the sanctuary and cannot believe it has been 12 months already since we arrived here!
