Sponsoring an animal at The Gentle Barn enables us to continue saving and caring for some of the most vulnerable and neglected animals.Click Here To Learn More About Animal Sponsorship
Zeus was born at a county fair and when it closed he was going to be sent to slaughter along with all the other animals there. He was saved instead and brought home to The Gentle Barn. Zeus is kind to visitors and gentle with the other pigs and we shower him with tummy rubs and love.
Farm pigs are genetically engineered to grow very big, very fast, so they can go to slaughter at 6 months old, as babies. When we rescue them and they grow till 3 like they’re supposed to, they end up being abnormally huge and have mobility issues once they’re adults. Unlike most farm pigs who typically live till 4 or 5, Zeus has made it till 12 years old. He is the oldest pig in the history of The Gentle Barn and we are thrilled! Naturally, we want even more time with him. Before the CBD, Zeus was only coming out of his room once a day, and straining and shaking while he walked. Once he started eating CBD in his food, he started running around the yard, splashing in his pool, and socializing with his friends 5 or 6 times a day, and walking strong with no quiver. He is bright, happy, strong, and feeling great! The CBD gave him a much better quality of life, and for that were extremely grateful!
