When Alicia arrived at the sanctuary, Harry still hadn't come back from the veterinary clinic, and they didn't expect him for several more days. Ahern worried Alicia's milk supply would dry up, so she introduced Alicia to the other young lambs to see if she'd let them nurse. She didn't - Alicia got scared when the lambs approached her, and bolted from them.
Then the vet called: Harry could come home that afternoon, which meant Alicia would be reunited with her baby sooner than expected. "We placed Alicia in our nursery and told her she was in for the surprise of her life," said Ahern, "but she continued to look terrified."
