Just Saved From Slaughter (6 Months Later)

Anasuya was so happy to get out of the barn and onto the pasture. She ran, jumped and kicked her heels in joy. The winter was long and harsh and the warm temperatures and green grass were like heaven. She may be a little hesitant when meeting new people but not very much and charmed some students from Hanover College when they came for a visit to the ISCOWP farm. She also is kind as we learned when we put Gourangi in the Old Cow Shelter that Anasuya and Indraneela were using. Anasuya stuck close as Gourangi passed away. Healthy and pretty (who would have known by the way she looked when she was rescued), Anasusya is living the good life at the ISCOWP farm as a protected cow.

Helping Gourangi

The recent video we published showed artk and treats being offered to the cows. After the ceremony, Gourangi and the rest of the cows were let out on pasture. As you know, Gourangi has been having trouble with arthritis in her legs. She kept up with the herd as they went out on pasture although she was moving very slowly. The video even shows her receiving a treat while on pasture.

A few days ago, we found her sitting in the lower pasture unable to get up. We knew we had to move her as there are coyotes in the woods. This slideshow shows how we moved her and how she is now staying in  the old cow shelter that was built last year. Indraneela and Anasuya (the two calves rescued from the auction barn last fall) are keeping her company. They can be seen snuggling with her. Since Indraneela and Anasuya were taken from their mothers at an early age, we think they perceive Gourangi as a mother figure.  

Gourangi is 19 years old which would make her 95 years old in human years.She has not been able to get up and is becoming weaker.She is listening to Srila Prabhupada chanting the Hare Krsna mantra and singing bhajans. She has received dust from Govardhan Hill in Vrindavan, India. If you could please join us in praying for her. Thank you.
