6:44am-One question we get asked alot is what is it like running a sanctuary? I guess the best way to describe it is it's like a big nursery school. Each "member" has their own personality and like kids sometimes personalities clash. And it seems one event spurs another and another. Once one of their friends are in trouble, the others come in as back up. For the most part you just have to give them a chance to work out their own troubles. The only time I step in is if I feel someone may get hurt. JJ and Willie like to chase the sheep and pigs. I step in because one could get hurt. I do time outs in a stall for that. Only five minutes or so. But, it's enough to make them think, until they forget about it. :) They may fuss with each other sometimes, but when someone gets hurt or in time out they all stick up for each other. For example if JJ is in time out. You'll see others standing at his stall feeling bad for him. They make me laugh, it's like living in a reality show!
A good example of personality is Miracle. She is full of it (personality). The picture is her with her "no time, this pig has things to do!" look.
