In the Barnyard: May 25, 2017

In California this week, the sheep got sheered. It is so hot, and in their summer wear, they are much cooler and more comfortable. Please come out and see how gorgeous they look!

In Tennessee, Dudley is having trouble with his residual limb again. I think he might have outgrown his prosthesis.…

Inside Scoop: Beth in California

I’ve been riding and working with horses for 38 years. I’ve been working with the horses at The Gentle Barn for the last 7+ years.
I’ve been fortunate to work with most of the horses at GB, at one time or another. It’s a joy to learn…

Inside Scoop: Susanne in California

As a long time vegan I have always been very interested in animal rights and welfare and of course, like so many of us, my dream is to have my own animal sanctuary one day. Will that ever happen? Who knows... I wouldn't know where to start.

Inside Scoop: Brian in California

I knew as a child that I loved animals, but was never consciously aware that I was selfishly choosing which ones to love. I ended up adopting a meat free diet two years ago and on my first visit to Gentle Barn, I learned…

In Loving Memory of Ginger

Ginger was already old when we rescued her four years ago from extreme cruelty. She was very sick when we brought her home and it took months for her to recover. Once she recovered, she learned to trust and have a wonderful fresh start here…

Blessings

Last week Bhante Sujatha came to visit and bless The Gentle Barn, our staff, the land, and the animals. His energy was amazing and we felt instant joy upon meeting him. He said a prayer and blessing for all our staff and then we introduced him to our animals. It was amazing to watch the…

Finding Grace

Before we rescued her, Grace was crippled by a large bull and could not walk. She had a broken pelvis and could only drag herself by her elbows. After months of trying to get her to stand, the agricultural school was going to send her to auction when we intervened and brought her home instead.…

The Inside Scoop: Sara in California

My first visit to The Gentle Barn was about a year ago after a move to California from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I had been vegan for a number of years and like many others, was a huge fan of The Gentle Barn on Facebook. It wasn’t until I was able to visit, however, that I saw the true impact…

Recovery

Athena was rescued from a horrendous cruelty case a few years ago. She has been at our Sun Chlorella Healing Center with the other cows we rescued at the same time, gaining weight and recovering physically. She is now in great physical health, but emotionally she has been frozen in the same place…
