Happy 5 Year Rescue-versary to the St. Louis Six

FROM The Gentle Barn
April 2022

These boys are a living testament to the power of new beginnings.

5 rescued Cows

Five years ago, six young cows were sent to slaughteróbut they wanted to live. Chico, wise beyond his years, led the others through three fences, and together they ran through the streets of St. Louis, seeking refuge. They knew that a better life was waiting for them, and they found it with us!

The heroic escape of the St. Louis Six was the reason we opened our Missouri sanctuary, and it's been an honor watching them slowly, but surely settle into their new lives and learn to trust.

Chico, Roo, Eddie, Houdini, Johnny Cash, and Spirit were just one year old when they arrived at The Gentle Barn Missouri on this day in 2017. Though Spirit sadly passed away from his injuries shortly after their rescue, his brothers, now fully grown, honor his memory every day by embracing their freedom and enjoying life to the fullest.

With their past a distant memory, these boys are a living testament to the power of new beginnings.
