When they rescued Karma the cow from terrible conditions on a small farm, they had no idea that they left behind her newborn calf.

The farm owner kept the calf hidden from them.  When they got Karma back to their sanctuary, “The Gentle Barn,” the cow never stopped giving distressed cries.  The mother was aching for her child.

As soon as they noticed milk dripping from her udders, they pieced the story together and immediately went back to the farm to rescue the young calf the following day.

The Gentle Barn works with children from the inner city, group homes, mental health care facilities, foster homes and schools.  They teach children that even though we are all different on the outside, on the inside we are all the same and deserve the same rights, respects and freedom.

When you watch this video, you will see that we not only are similar to each other within the human race, we share deep, emotional similarities with all living beings.  The reunion between this mother cow and her young calf is beautiful.  They are brought back together just in time.  It is heart-wrenching to watch the calf collapse due to weakness and stress.  But to see them reunited and the calf feeding on his mother’s milk is priceless.

We are so thankful for the work of The Gentle Barn.  After watching this video, take some time to look at their website and get involved with what they are doing.
