“The Special Needs Farm | Inspiring Stories
Di Slaney quit her city lifestyle for a dilapidated farm in Nottinghamshire which she turned into a sanctuary for animal outcasts. Di’s family of outcasts include arthritic sheep and partially sighted pigs.”

From the Manor Farm website:
“We provide lifelong sanctuary for livestock in need, particularly elderly, disabled farm animals and those with special behavioural needs. We often take difficult to rehome animals from other rescue charities and offer them loving care and rehabilitation.”
