Light the cow, living in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn California

Light (AKA Pink Lady) was sent to slaughter pregnant and gave birth inside the slaughterhouse. Thankfully the owner allowed us to have them both and bring them back to the safety of The Gentle Barn. She had been branded three times and was terrified of us, and fiercely protective of her son. I have no idea if there was disease in the slaughterhouse or in the farm itself, but Light's son was so sick when he arrived at The Gentle Barn that we had to carry him. Thanks to Light's dedication when he was born to make sure he had sufficient colostrum and support, he had a great immune system. And thanks to our veterinarian and energy healers her son, David recovered. It took a few weeks, but Light learned to trust us, became a cookie monster, and is happy and healthy. Light will finally get to raise her baby, after so many have been taken away. And she will finally be taken care of properly and loved, like all cows should be.
