Montxito was a little lamb who had been abandoned somewhere in the Balearics. It is standard practice for male lambs to be abandoned by the shepherds as they are not as profitable as the females.

When Montxito was abandoned, he had just hours to live. He was taken far enough from the farm to ensure that he did not find his way back. We do not know how he found the strength but, in what would have been his final hours, he was found and taken to a municipality shelter (much like a local dog pound). It was from there that Montxito’s story reached us. After a lengthy beaureucratic battle, and thanks to the support of a number of people who helped us and were willing to fight to save the little lamb, we managed to get him out of there.

Montxito came to us with another lamb who needed to be hospitalised immediately after rescue. Sadly, he did not make it as the toll on his young body from the horrible start to life he had been given was simply too much to bear. He passed away at the veterinary hospital.

Montxito, however, survived the 20 hour journey by boat and arrived at the sanctuary. When he arrived, it was not just his life that changed forever, but ours too. He became a very popular little character at the sanctuary, and loved to spend time in our living room, playing with the cats or simply lying and having a nap on the armchair closest to the stove. Montxito won our hearts as he grew, and those of the other sanctuary residents too.

Montxito never knew his mother and, for him, the people and animals of Wings of Heart are the only family he has ever known.
