One of my best phantom planter memories!

 Was this day 4 years ago I was down mulching some phantom plum trees I have near the Mourne Mountains,  then I decided to go for a walk in the mountains.

As we were walking we had spotted a wee sheep with its heads stuck in a hole and it wasn't for moving, turns out it had a broken leg.

So I carried it off the mountain and brought it to a vet, they said if its kept off the leg it should heal ok but if it goes back on the mountain it will die.


I had put a post on here back then to see if anyone wanted to look after it and one nice family got in touch with me and took the wee sheep in, turns out it was a girl and they named her Flossie.


Flossie made a full recovery thanks to this lovely family putting in so much effort to look after her.

They made her a sling and other aids to keep her of her leg so she could heal correctly.

To this day Flossie is living her life on a farm with a horse as a friend.

I have went and visited her a few times and her tail was wagging when she seen me, think she remembered me!


I had managed to find out who the farmer was that owned the sheep on the mountain and let him know what had happened and also to ask if we could keep it as I got attached to her and didnt want to see her on someones dinner plate as thats what would have happened if I had put her back up on the mountain!


He was happy for us to keep it but he did say he didn't think it would last more than a few weeks as its a wild sheep, but Flossie proved us wrong!


This is up there with my best phantom planter memories yet!


Two of the pics is me carrying Flossie off the mountain, think she knew I was helping her as she was so relaxed and the other is her a couple of years later looking all Regal looking in the snow.
