We were planning a trip to visit and then the pandemic hit. We can’t show you the pictures we were going to take of the horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn
In substitute, take a look at these animals!

The Gentle Barn is on a six-acre paradise in Santa Clarita, CA. The Gentle Barn has a second location in Nashville, Tennessee, and a third in St Louis, Missouri. It is their goal to open Gentle Barns in every state so that everyone in America can hug cows, cuddle turkeys, give pigs tummy rubs, and look into the eyes of these animals and know for certain that we are all the same, and deserving of the same rights, respects, and freedoms.
Since its inception, The Gentle Barn has saved thousands of animals. Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories:

“The Gentle Barn rescues animals from severe abuse and neglect who are too old, sick, lame, or scared to be adopted into homes. We are sanctuary to horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs.”

It’s unusual to receive a card in snail mail nowadays. Increasingly, social media,text and e-mail messages are the choice for everything from birthday greetings to wedding invitations.It was a nice surprise to receive a card from Sharon Bonin-Pratt (A “CURIOUS” Well Done Woman) and was struck by how lovely and whimsical the trees were.
I was even more surprised and delighted when I saw Sharon had hand drawn and painted it.
