Merry is a friendly, energetic Katahdin girl who loves to eat okra. She will turn her nose away at many other fruits and vegetables, but she loves to chomp on tender okra pods. Her large ears help her and the rest of the flock notice when someone is approaching to say hello or bring snacks. She might even put her front hooves on you to see what you've got. Merry is loud and loves to bleat when she sees something worth mentioning! When she's excited, she will run and prance around with her friends. Being a young ewe, she spends most of her day out grazing, while her older ewe friends lay in the shade. She loves to spend time with her young companion, Fudge, who is just a couple months older than her. Together, they get a lot of chewing and chomping done!
Merry arrived to Sweet Peace Farm Sanctuary with her sister Pippin. They were very shy at first, since they came from an agricultural college that intended to use them for cafeteria meat. Some activists found a way to bring them to Sweet Peace, where they lived together for two months in happiness and freedom. It only took a few weeks of being treated kindly before Merry & Pippin's personalities bloomed and they really loved interacting with people. They loved to prance around together, jump and eat leaves, baa loudly, and they always looked forward to seeing our founder dog Sweetpea. Unfortunately, Pippin fell gravely ill and passed, leaving the sister she loved behind. Merry mourned her sister for quite some time, taking solace in the companionship of our older ewes. She then met Fudge and her heart was full again.
