Our Golden Boy

Serenity and Rumi - Our Golden Boy

This month we celebrated the seventh birthday of our cow Rumi. He lives at our Sun Chlorella Healing Center with his mom, Serenity. We…

Hope

Jay and I spent last weekend at The Natural Product Expo West at the Anaheim Convention Center. It was wonderful! The NPEW is where natural companies meet store buyers to get their products on the shelves. It is also open to the public to taste and sample the products. There were…

Resilience

If The Gentle Barn were called by any other name, it would be The Resilient Barn. That word describes the animals we rescue, the children we work with, and even describes our staff, our volunteers, Jay, and me. We have had to practice…

So much Gratitude

Jay and I finally got back to Los Angeles this week, after being at the Tennessee location for almost a month. In Knoxville we fixed fences, shored up the muddy pig area, created a ramp to dump the animal waste and bedding, got captain through quarantine, and just before we left, watched Captain romp and…

Captain America

Jay and I are still in Knoxville. We were only supposed to stay for a week but things are such a mess because of the rain and mud, that we staid to give The Gentle Barn TN a face lift. While we’re here we are also spending lots of time with Captain gaining his trust, keeping him entertained, and keeping him healthy.…

Our Captain

You might have seen our Facebook live feed this week of our new rescue in Tennessee. Captain is not only sweet, humble, undemanding, unassuming, and one of the gentlest creatures we’ve met, but he has an amazing story. Captain was the very last calf sold by a dairy that shut down. He was bottle fed, loved, and raised by a family for their…

When animals come for the latter, they typically do not stay…

This Little Light of Mine

When I was little, I felt my connection to animals very strongly. I communicated with them, I saw them, they saw me, and I was lead to them when they needed help. My drive to heal them and the gifts that they had for me in return…

FIFTY!

About a year ago when I realized it would be my very last year in my forties, I started creating goals that I would reach by the time I hit fifty. I decided that I wanted to be one of those people who was so healthy and fit, that I would…

Moved To Tears

This last week Jay and I traveled to Missouri to visit with our manager Michelle and the animals and to see how everyone was doing. The property was gorgeous, the animals were happy and healthy, and the organization seems well run and efficient. It was so lovely to meet the goats, Baron…
