The first time I met Buddha he greeted me with a big cow smooch! Of course, I fell in love instantly. Buddha is a HUGE Holstein dairy cow. This gentle giant is over 2,000 pounds, nearly 6 feet tall, and has a kind heart with a playful spirit. His best friend is another cow named Rosa, and he loves her even more than he loves hay (and trust me, he LOVES his hay). He loves hay so much that he’s outgrown his first barn and is still growing!
Happy Hen Animal Sanctuary stepped in to rescue him when he was just a week old. He had been removed from his mother at the dairy and did not get the important colostrum from her that he needed to thrive. This led to him becoming very sick and he had to be rushed to the hospital. It was touch and go for several months, but his strong will helped him pull through and make a full recovery! When he went outside for the first time, he literally jumped with joy.
Buddha reminds everyone who visits the sanctuary why animals deserve to be rescued, respected, and loved. He has changed the lives of many people just through his presence, and he showed me how gentle and sweet a cow can be. I adore him.
