Spring is the most important time for animal care at The Gentle Barn—and it’s also our most biggest hay delivery season! The cows and pigs need hoof trimming, the horses and donkeys need dental care, the sheep need gentle shearing, the llamas and alpacas need haircuts, the horses and cows need special fly masks, and everyone who needs it gets deworming.
It’s absolutely critical that we raise the funds needed to care for our animals!
We also need truckloads of hay: Our cows, horses, donkeys, llamas, sheep, and goats eat hay. Our pigs use grass hay for bedding. Our chickens, turkeys and peacock use grass hay for their nests and bedding. Each location needs 3 truckloads of hay per month to feed the animals through summer. Each bale of hay costs The Gentle Barn $25, and a truckload of hay per month per location costs: about $10,000 each!
