Eminem the sheep had been raised in Southeastern Michigan to be food for someone’s dinner. But his will to live was too strong. He escaped from a Detroit slaughterhouse and was sighted running down 8 Mile Road on the east side of Detroit – one of the favorite hangouts of rap singer Eminem, hence his name. He was cornered in an auto body shop by Detroit Animal Control and surrendered to SASHA Farm.
Eminem trembled with fear while being transported to SASHA Farm, and it took him some time to warm up to the loving humans who cared for him. Today, he is one of the sweetest and most friendly of the sheep residents. He’s often mistaken for his buddy, Sheldon, and has an adorable pink snoot like Suzy, another well-known SASHA sheep. After eating breakfast, he usually likes to graze on grass for a mid-morning snack. He gets along with all of the sheep and enjoys an afternoon nap with the herd, often giving his favorite people smooches. Always the perfect patient when his hooves are being trimmed or he is being sheared, he is a joy to care for.
Eminem – we at SASHA are so grateful that your escape from the slaughterhouse took on the path to a safe and happy life at SASHA Farm. This is where you were meant to be all along. WE LOVE YOU!
