Baarack, an Australian sheep, was found in a forest in Melbourne, tremendously covered with his heavy, untouched-for-years fleece. After being rescued, he was brought to Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary, a nonprofit organization near Lancefield, Victoria.

Seemingly, Baarack had once been owned as he had indications of a tag, but the rescue team didn’t find his ear marker, as it was ripped off given his thick mane.

“Whilst his hooves were in great condition from running over the rocks in the forest, he was in a bit of a bad way. He was underweight, and due to all of the wool around his face, he could barely see,” Kyle Behrend, a representative from the sanctuary, told Reuters.

Kyle added that sheep must be given a good trim at least once a year, not only to keep them tidy but also to make it easier for them to move around.

So, Baarack instantly got a glam team — thanks to the sanctuary group — who shaved off his matted fleece, giving him a total makeover!

The glow up comes with a new family for Baarack, who is now surrounded with other rescue sheep like him, and is getting used to his new sanctuary home.

“All goes to show what incredibly resilient and brave animals sheep really are,” Kyle said. “We could not love them any more if we tried.”

Kyle has perfectly said it, sheep like Baarack are the silently brave types. They still look so calm and peaceful even if they seem to be carrying their world upon their shoulders.

Thanks for setting a good example, resilient sheep!
