I've been a "fan" of the Gentle Barn for years now, following their incredible stories of rescue on Facebook, it's one of my goals to visit Gentle Barn in Los Angeles in the next five years. So, when Dudley's story started on Gentle Barn's facebook page about two years ago, I was glued to my computer screen following along on his journey to recovery.
Dudley is an amazing cow who lost his foot when he was a calf, luckily Gentle Barn was able to step in and save his life. Now he lives at The Gentle Barn Tennessee in Knoxville, which fortunately for us, is just a car drive away from Atlanta.
After a few months of anticipation, we finally got to meet Dudley at The Gentle Barn Tennessee over Memorial Day weekend.
Getting a hug from a cow really is an amazing thing:
Why Gentle Barn is an amazing place:
They not only rescue severely abused animals, they rehabilitate these animals so that they in turn teach kindness to humans.
It is never too early to teach kindness to children.
Thank you for the hug, Dudley. We can't wait to visit you again soon!
