Offering a sanctuary for sick animals

‘For 20 years Carole Webb has cared for sick and unwanted farm animals.’ – Carole speaks to Simon McEwan in an excellent article, published Christmas 2009 in the Country Smallholding magazine.


Marigold is a delightful Anglo Nubian goat.

Marigold and Morgan were the only goats at the sanctuary and had been here for about ten years. They had always lived happily together. Sadly, this year, Morgan passed away quite suddenly. Marigold had never been on her own and the whole team felt that it was too sad for Marigold to live at Fars without her friend. A dear friend of the sanctuary, Sue, rescues goats and so Marigold has gone to live at The Rescue Ranch. As you can see from the pictures she has settled really well. 

Sue is an amazing, compassionate person who for two decades has dedicated her life to rescuing farm and domestic animals, particularly elderly, disabled and those with special needs, providing a lifelong sanctuary for them. The Rescue Ranch is a non profit organisation so all donations are really appreciated and go towards caring for the animals. 

You can still adopt Marigold. Any adoption fees will be sent on to Sue to help give Marigold the life she deserves at:

Thank you for your support. Love Carole, the team and Marigold.


Marigold and Morgan (we believe they were mother and son) were brought into the sanctuary after being found abandoned, tethered to a garden fence.

The Anglo Nubian goat is recognisable by its long floppy ears and pronounced ‘Roman’ style nose. Generally, they are slightly longer in the body than other breeds. It is also one of the heaviest and tallest breeds of goat, with males weighing up to 140 Kgs and females up to 110 Kgs. Being naturally curious creatures anyway, this mischievous duo would chew on and taste just about anything resembling plant matter to decide whether it is good to eat. They were also quite athletic when it comes to climbing and would scale almost any obstacle just to nibble on something they fancy.

Roy Hattersley Visits FARS

They all think they’ve gone to animal heaven

Roy Hattersley sums up Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary in his December 2007 Daily Mail December article. This great read, more than describes Woolly Park Farm and the hard-work and determination Carole has put in over the years to build this haven of compassion and kindness.

Rose is smothered with love and cuddles from the babies. 

A HUGE thank you to Rose Kasili (Rose Kasili Photography) and Buster Fisher (Artist), who paid Woolly Park a visit today, after both offering to help Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary with their fabulous creative talents. The weather was not particularly great with torrential downpours for most of the day, however, it did mean they could get close up and personal with many of our lovely residents, including our busy nursery!

As you can see both Rose and Buster couldn’t resist love and cuddles from the babies and giving us a helping hand too. A huge thank you to them both for supporting the sanctuary in this way, we are extremely grateful. To see the fabulous photographs taken  on the day please visit The Rose Kasili Collection website page.
