The Ups and Downs of Rescue

There are so many wonderful moments for us at The Gentle Barn. We rescue animals who are pregnant, who have lived terrible lives and have suffered unmentionable acts of cruelty, who give birth to babies who will always be safe and respected with us. We bring animals home who are sick and…

A Mom’s Love

Those of you who read my book, My Gentle Barn, know how connected I was to my first cow, Buddha. She was more like a mom to me than she ever was a rescued animal. She was my witness when I cried, she gave the warmest hugs, she helped me with…
