Members of a charity who appealed to Farmers Guardian for help when 22 of their sheep went missing said they were ‘over the moon’ most of the animals have been returned.

 

As FG reported earlier this month the Shetland sheep, which were donated to the Military Veterans Agricultural Project, which works to encourage former service men and women back into work, were taken from a farm in Ceredigion.

 

Garry Dean, who runs the farm, said: “Soon after the story went out in Farmers Guardian one of the auctioneers in Aberystwyth rang to say he had alerted other auctioneers, slaughterhouses and butchers in the area.

 

“He said the thieves would have been stupid to try and sell the sheep because they were ‘too hot to handle’.

 

“We haven’t got them all back which is a shame, but at least we have got the majority thanks to the power of Farmers Guardian and its readers. The boys and girls at the project are so chuffed.”

 

Mr Dean said the plight of the charity had also caught the attention of the Shetland sheep Society which had offered to donate some of its sheep.

 

He added: “We cannot thank people enough for their generosity and their efforts in helping to get our sheep back.”

 

  • If anyone would like to donate livestock and machinery call Mr Dean on 07956 008 711.
