SAVED!

  

Every year, we save some turkeys from Thanksgiving. Chelsea is a sixteen-year-old girl who loves animals and wants to grow up to save them. She asked us if she could help us rescue the turkeys this year like she…

True Love

                                    

As humans, we like to put things into boxes or categories: this person is good, this situation is bad, dogs are loyal, cats are independent, etc. Animals on the other hand don’t discriminate at all. In fact they seem to see the similarities in all of us, instead of the differences.…

Gentle Barn: The Truth

                                                  

Volunteering at the Gentle Barn has been one of the best and most rewarding decisions of my life. When I started 3 years ago as a volunteer horse groomer, Ellie patiently taught me how to pamper their amazing horses with a calming, gentle touch. As the horses began to honor…

Free at Last!

             

Aretha knew that they were raising her to be eaten. When we loaded her up into the trailer to take her home, the man said, “She is going to be delicious!” Her whole life she had been seen as a slab of meat and not the…

A Hero Comes To Visit!

                                                

Last Sunday, the weather was perfect! The sky was a stunning blue, there was a fresh breeze, the sun was shining, and we had a few hundred visitors from all over the world who came to hug our cows, give the pigs tummy rubs, feed our horses, and cuddle our turkey,…

Brave Heart is Back!

                                       

Come out on a Sunday and help us welcome him home! He had a contagious abscess on his neck, so to protect the rest of the herd, we had to bring him to our Sun Chlorella Healing Center where the abscess could be lanced, flushed, and healed. He received great medical care there, plenty of…

Another year of healing children and animals is underway at The Gentle Barn. As you know, The Gentle Barn saves animals no one else wants. Then, we bring the animals home to heal and be rehabilitated with acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, ultrasound, chiropractic,…

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,…

Sid & Sam

  

Remember Charlie and Lacey? The senior labs we saved from being euthanized at the animal shelter almost 2 years ago? They had such a great time at The Gentle Barn healing their arthritis and incontinence, being a part of our…
