Barn Update

Julian is doing great! He is off penicillin and finishing his last few days of the dewormer. His temp is normal and his spirits are fantastic! He just loves Dakota Rey and Johnny and the three of them do everything together. Dakota Rey has turned into a teddy bear and Johnny is such a sweet baby boy who cries for his bottle of nutritional supplements every morning.

The 6 goats are healing so fast! They don’t run from us when we walk by, they lie down when we are in the room, they are allowing us to pet them in little bits and Amelia even jumps up on us when it is time for nutritional supplements! They have a long way still to go but they are headed in the right direction!

Our dog Socks was attacked by another dog while walking with us along our horse trails this week. She has a large bite on her rear hip. She is getting all the care she needs and lots TLC while she mends. We know that the attacking dog was only trying to protect his property and doing what he thought was right. Even when others hurt us, even when it is hard to do, we have to love them and bless them and know that they were only doing the best they could. Socks would love any good energy, thoughts and prayers, thank you!

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

The original idea behind Fry’s was to find a way to make nutritious products for our family who are all passionate about plant-based diets. Back when we started in 1991 most people thought we were crazy. “Plants that look and taste like meat, made in your kitchen!?” Okay, maybe we were crazy, but with passion and determination, great things can happen.

We are thrilled to be sponsoring The Gentle 12 this November for World Vegan Month at the three Gentle Barn locations and look forward to all the visitors coming to meet the animals and sampling our delicious Fry’s treats. We adore the work that Ellie, Jay, and everyone at the California, Missouri and Tennessee sanctuaries are doing to save so many wonderful animals and provide them with a safe, loving home. By choosing our Fry’s plant-based products over animal protein, our customers end up saving over 3.5 million animals each year so The Gentle Barn’s dedication to the health and well-being of these loving farm animals fits perfectly with our own mission of saving the planet and all of its inhabitants.
