Loving Seniors

          

At The Gentle Barn, we rescue and give sanctuary to animals who no one else wants, including elderly animals. We save senior dogs from being euthanized at the pound, older horses who can’t be ridden anymore, and mature pigs who no one…

Remembering Cinnamon Apple Pie

                                     

In 2003, we met a horse that stole our hearts and we had to bring her home. She was in so much pain that she could barely walk because she had been ridden very hard and her body was destroyed. Even though she flinched when we lightly touched her, she was grateful, sweet, and kind,…

A Mission To Love & Learn

                           

This week we had an amazing group of children from the Los Angeles Mission, made possible by Sun Chlorella. Like our animals, these kids have gone through some terrible times and have had to grow up too fast. They came out to the barn to hug cows, cuddle turkeys, give tummy rubs to the pigs,…

Remembering Buddha

                     

It is impossible to celebrate The Gentle Barn’s 15th Anniversary without talking about Buddha. Buddha was The Gentle Barn’s very first cow. She was also the same age as The Gentle Barn, so she would have been 15 years old now. Buddha was the wisest animal we have ever met and it was very common…

We Have Come A Long Way!

                                               

The Gentle Barn was my dream since I was seven-years old. Animals were always my best friends and confidantes when I was a small child and when I grew up I wanted to have a place to heal animals and love them as they have always healed and loved me. I started The Gentle Barn…

Brook
