Rescued cow rolls with sheer joy at his forever home

Nigel is thrilled with his new sense of freedom. His joy is heart warming as the plays and chases his friend, Benny around the paddock at the farm where he now lives. Nigel is just a gigantic farm puppy. The cows here are more like dogs than most people would expect. Nigel will live the rest of his days in the safety and security of this sanctuary, Black Dog Farm and Rescue. But life didn't start this well for Nigel. He came from a nearby farm where he and his friend, Benny were destined to become food very shortly. Covid put a halt on meat production long enough for the farmer to realize that the calves would be eating hay and grain and costing him money, but they were no longer valuable. This is the farming industry and the cows are a source of income. They were never intended to be pets. But Jennifer and Jim run this beautiful farm in Texas. They called it Black Dog Farm and Rescue because black dogs are much more likely to be rejected and abandoned than dogs of any other colour. They knew Benny and Nigel would thrive at their sanctuary and that these gentle beasts should never be treated as livestock to be slaughtered, especially because they had suddenly simply devalued. Jennifer and Jim bought the cows from the farmer and brought them here to their forever home. It was a strange, new world for these two cow friends, but they responded quickly to love and kindness and to gentle human interaction. Given free time to play, the bond between the two grew rapidly and they are now inseparable. They run and play, checking out new things with a touching and surprising curiosity. They are playful and happy as they learn to trust the humans who run this magical place. They come when called by name. Nigel took a break from his rolling to come running for a snack. He adores treats, and he thrives in the freedom of choosing whether to run in the sunshine or nap in the straw. The cows here are truly free. They will live here in safety as long as they need to. Many of the dogs and cats who are rescued by this organization will move on to carefully selected forever homes. Many others, such as Nigel and Benny, need to remain here. The dogs and cows even accept and play with each other. The farm also provides a home for goats, hens, and even a rescued guinea pig. This magical rescue runs through the hard work and sacrifice of Jennifer, Jim, and their family, but it also relies on generous support from other animal lovers.
