A Happy Birthday

We sang Biscuit happy birthday last week and gave him a special piggy birthday cake made out of carrots, bananas, apples, molasses and nuts, made by two of our very special baking volunteers. There were a lot of visitors in the barnyard and, honestly, I was wondering if he would appreciate all of us waking him up from his nap to sing to him. But he loved it! He sat up and smiled and enjoyed his song and then devoured his cake, sharing of course with his barnyard friends.

Being 1,000 pounds, we are very grateful to have Biscuit this long and we desperately hope that we can celebrate with him again next year. As Biscuit happily munched on his cake we all told him how much we love and appreciate him, one family even made him hand drawn birthday cards, which made Biscuit feel very special and celebrated.

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

MyCHELLE Dermaceuticals and Crystal Deodorant are proud to sponsor The Gentle Barn. We admire the work they do to rescue and lovingly care for animals who have been subjected to animal testing. United by a cruelty-free mission, we want to help spread awareness for the work they do. It is impossible to look into the eyes of the animals they have rescued and not ask yourself… what more could I do. Join us in support of this wonderful, “second-chances” organization and look for cruelty-free on the products you buy.
