The Gentle Barn rescues animals from severe abuse and neglect who are too old, sick, lame, or scared to be adopted into homes. We are sanctuary to horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs. Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories.
She was abandoned and neglected for many, many years, eating from people’s yards and sleeping under car ports. By the time we were told about her, her hooves were grossly overgrown, causing permanent malformations in the bones and tendons. We brought her home to The Gentle Barn to get the care she deserves and the family and the home she’s always wanted. It will take time for her to recover and much effort to set things right, but she so worth it.
