In the Barnyard: May 25, 2017

In California this week, the sheep got sheered. It is so hot, and in their summer wear, they are much cooler and more comfortable. Please come out and see how gorgeous they look!

In Tennessee, Dudley is having trouble with his residual limb again. I think he might have outgrown his prosthesis. We are having the vet come look at him to make sure he is in good shape, and the prostheticist take measurements for a new prosthesis. He has a bruise on his the bottom of his residual limb so he’ll be in stall for rest for about a week. Please come out and see him and give him lots of attention and love.

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

Miyoko's Creamery is leading the animal-free transformation of the dairy industry for the urgent salvation of the planet and all living beings. Made from organic, whole food ingredients with a complex flavor profile derived from fermentation and culturing, Miyoko's cheeses and butter have won the hearts and minds of cheese lovers with their compassionate approach to culinary dairy innovation.

Miyoko’s Creamery is thrilled to be sponsoring The Gentle Barn this month because we strongly believe that animals are to be loved not eaten. Thank you, Gentle Barn for providing refuge to these beautiful creatures and for drawing attention to the importance of sanctuary among species.
