You might wonder why we think our new calf is so special that he deserves a great name. Well, like all great heroes for whom life began in circumstances that became the stuff of stories long remembered, our calf already is living a story to remember.

His story actually began before his birth in the HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary & Rescue Center pasture. It began with his mother, Bae, on a family dairy farm with a courageous decision.

Three cows, including Bae, were owned by a young woman who decided they should live. Live. And not only that, live better. Having the strength of her convictions to make such a decision, she was told subsequently to remove her cows from the farm. The young woman did so. She brought them home to her family’s smaller farm and then reached out to the Sanctuary.

HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary & Rescue Center does not have a large trailer for moving farm animals. So, the journey of the three cows became, in itself, a simple yet extraordinary act. Determined to be responsible for giving her cows this chance at a new life, the young woman walked her cows, two of whom were expecting, the three miles down the road to HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary & Rescue Center. And so eventually arrived our new little calf, the proud son of a mother who carried him as she journeyed to their new home.

The little calf was born with an issue involving his front legs that made standing and walking difficult in his first days. However he was born also with a determination to rise, to walk, to explore and enjoy his new life. He has the strength and heart of all those who made that walk to the HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary & Rescue Center. He displays that heart proudly for all to see, a big white heart on his face. That’s why we think he’s special and deserves a name just as special.
