Crystal was one of six calves born at a dairy, taken from their moms, held in veal crates, sent to auction at 8 weeks, and saved by The Gentle Barn when they were too sick to stand. They were so ill that it took us 7 months of round-the-clock care to heal them. Once recovered, Crystal and her brothers and sisters got to grow up and live at The Gentle Barn together. Crystal got to be assistant to our matriarch, Karma, and when Karma passed away, Crystal got to become the matriarch of our herd until she passed away at the age of 15. Crystal passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her friends and family. Crystal was sweet, kind, wise, and gentle, and will forever be missed!
