In December of 2017 we got a call from a neighbor about a sheep she’d seen living feral in the woods, not far from The Gentle Barn Missouri. Einstein had clearly escaped from something terrible and was surviving the best way he knew how.

We started feeding him every day and telling him about the life we can offer, with a warm bed, food, family, and love, if he’d only allow us to bring him home. We learned from the community that Einstein had been living alone in the woods for at least three years, and that many people had tried to catch him over the years, but failed. We made it our mission to bring him home with us and give him the life he deserved.

After about four months of planning and several failed attempts to catch him, one of our animal caretakers caught Einstein singlehandedly. We are now able to make good on all of our promises to Einstein with a warm bed, fresh water, delicious food, friends, family, and love. After surviving in the woods for three years, always on constant alert for danger, Einstein is now able to relax and enjoy life! Now he loves getting brushed and is showing everyone that even after hardship and trauma, it’s okay to let your guard down and start over.

Help in the care and support of Worthy and the animals of The Gentle Barn.
