Read Karma's Story (In Memoriam)

Karma was rescued from a cruelty case many years ago. She cried and cried until we finally realized she was crying for a baby left behind. We negotiated his release, and reunited them at The Gentle Barn. Eight months later, Karma had a second baby we named Surprise. After a lifetime of having her babies taken away, Karma got to raise both her sons at The Gentle Barn, fall in love with our other cow, Forgiveness, and become the matriarch of our entire bovine family. Karma helped raise the babies, discipline the teenagers, groom every member of her family after breakfast, and lead daily meditation circles. She helped us host cow hug therapy sessions and gave out at least 400,000 hugs to our guests. We all came to her when we were having a bad day and she made us all feel hopeful and loved. Karma passed away at the age of 23. She taught us what a matriarch is, was the shining example of a great and nurturing mother, and is everything we want to be when we grow up! We will carry her with us always!
