Little Details

This week we brought another one of our horses to the hospital. Caesar is now thirty-two years old. He has overcome past abuse, has opened up and come out of his shell, has become the…

Warrior

Our miniature horse Bonsai has been in and out of the hospital now for about three months. Initially, he had a very painful impaction and over time caused an infection in his intestines. This took a very long time to heal. Horses have bacteria in their gut, including salmonella, which is dormant when they’re healthy and strong, but when they have an elongated illness that bacteria can take over. Bonsai was diagnosed with salmonella last week, which has caused a lack of appetite, severe diarrhea, and extreme weight loss. There is no way to directly treat the salmonella, however with supportive care, like Sun Chlorella, acupuncture, massage therapy, energy work, fluids, tube feeding, probiotics, daily visits and love, and great vet care, Bonsai is finally getting better, slowly.

There was a time where Bonsai had lost so much weight, was so uncomfortable, and was feeling so weak, that I was wondering if he had had enough and wanted to transition...

Happily Ever After in Ohio

                     

About four years ago, there was a pound in Ohio that was keeping the dogs outside in the snow during the winter. The dogs were getting very sick and after a public outcry the authorities in charge decided to euthanize all the dogs…

Thumper's Adventures

                    

Almost five years ago, we discovered a backyard butcher who was doing horrible things to animals. We started pulling animals from there (that were literally on the verge of death) and bringing them home to The Gentle Barn to save them. Meanwhile, the authorities were working on making conditions…

Charlie and Lacey are 15 years old now

We rescued Charlie and Lacey a year ago when they were 14 years old and could not walk. We gave them superior nutrition to give them strength, Sun Chlorella to boost their immune system, and acupuncture, massage therapy, cold laser, chiropractic, and water therapy to keep them pain free and mobile. It…

Chickens

We have about 25 chickens right now and most of them are older hens who are the products of the egg industry. In the egg industry, chickens are genetically engineered to reach sexual maturity at only a few months old instead of at 2 years old as nature intended. Since they are designed to lay eggs very early…

Charlie and Lacey: One Year Later!

Charlie and Lacey were rescued a year ago this month and are doing so well! After living outdoors for 14 years, they are finally in a home where they are loved and adored.

Their therapy continues to support them and enable them to walk and be pain free. They love going for walks and adventures…

Lilly

Our pig, Lilly, was rescued many years ago from being put down at an animal shelter. She had been used as a breeder pig her whole life, where her food was thrown to her and her babies taken away from her. When she could not get pregnant anymore she was sent to the pound to be put down. She had never known…

Lacey and Charlie

As you probably know, Charlie and Lacey were rescued eight months ago from being put down at an animal shelter. They were arthritic, incontinent and old. Over the last several months, we have been giving them acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic, and water therapy and it has really helped them with their…

Rakki (Japanese for lucky, pronounced rocky)

Our little champion, Rakki, had to have surgery again this week because his skin was so thin and fragile after the coyote attack that his wound opened up. After an overnight stay at the hospital he is now all stitched…

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

No Evil Foods makes meat…from plants. Some people told us it couldn’t be done. We took that as a challenge and started a rebellious company that uses food as a force for good. In a world of unsustainable animal agricultural practices and highly processed meat alternatives, our small-batch plant-based meats challenge the status quo by using simple, sustainable ingredients to recreate a traditional protein experience that blows minds from coast to coast.

No Evil Foods was born from a belief in the power of an individual (in our case, two) to enact global change and we couldn't be more excited to put our purpose into practice through our support of The Gentle Barn. We strongly believe that each of us has the power and responsibility to repair the world by speaking up for the most vulnerable among us. Thanks to The Gentle Barn for creating a safe place where our farmed friends can find peace.
