LATEST UPDATES FROM THE FARM
Happy Birthday Boys!
by Lynn Printy | July 12, 2019
I t has been wonderful having our beautiful boys (steers) with us for the past 6 years! We knew very little about raising cows and how much our hearts would melt getting to know each one individually. They were very small when we brought them home to our house in Newtown. They were frisky and a little scared and so were we!
Belle & Brody
Amazing to see the dynamics of how this herd has grown …
They have always loved each other and are inseparable. When they were young they played all the time. Cody, who was very connected to his Mom Cara, would cry out if he didn’t get his way or if someone was picking on him. Cara would come right over to check on him, she was an amazing Mother. Belle was always licking on Brody, he had wild hairdos from all her loving. The boys and the girls like to lick ears and eyes, grooming soothes them as it is a time for bonding. Belle also loved on Ethan quite often as well. It is amazing to see the dynamics of how this herd has grown and changed in many ways. Cody has past away, Brody and Grady struggle with health issues but we are working to provide them with the best health care we can.
Most of the time the cows are very quiet but you can see the excitement in them when it’s time for cookies as they start to move around in their stalls and watch with curiosity, who’s going to be the first to get treats. We will always make sure they get special treats every year on their birthday and encourage them to be who they are, a cow that gets to roam freely at JP Farm Animal Sanctuary.
When they were young
Each day I walk into the barn and greet them, they make me smile as they turn their heads. They inspire me to want to be a kinder more generous person. One who will advocate for those who don’t have a voice, encourage plant based food options that are healthier, really tasty and are better for our planet.
We want to wish the boys the Happiest Birthday and for them to live out their lives in peace and joy.
Would you like to get the boys a birthday gift? Any donation amount toward their food and medical expenses would be wonderful!
