Mother’s Day at SASHA Farm on Facebook LIVE

We know you are missing the SASHA Farm animal residents and they most certainly miss you. So, during this spring and summer of 2020, we will meet up with you during several Facebook Live events, so you can see your favorites and get to know everyone who calls SASHA their forever home.  You’ll have a chance to comment and ask questions throughout the live video.

On most Sundays, we will have interactive mini-tours (Sanctuary Sundays) and we’ll post the link to the video so you can watch later if you miss it.

Sunday, May 10 is Mother’s Day and SASHA Farm will be celebrating the SASHA Animal Mothers. Time: 2-2:30 pm EST. Place: SASHA Facebook Live

A Family Together

Apple, a beautiful Holstein, was raised on a beef farm. We do not really know how many calves were taken from her to be raised for beef nor the heartbreak that she and her calves went through as they were separated. But in 2013, the landowner decided to sell the property, and she and the rest of the herd she lived with were destined for slaughter. Luckily, a longtime SASHA Farm volunteer became aware of this and in turn made SASHA Farm aware. Donations from volunteers and other friends helped give the herd their freedom. This volunteer, Katie Eory, became Apple’s first sponsor, while her boss’s son sponsored and named two of the other herd members Emma and Webb.

When these Holsteins arrived at SASHA Farm, Apple’s daughter, still a calf, was named “White Heart” because of the white heart on her forehead, which she obviously inherited from her mom. Apple and White Heart gradually warmed up to their loving caretakers despite having little positive human contact in their lives before. Soon they were loving every new day at SASHA.

Apple was pregnant when she arrived, and six months later gave birth to her son, Billy Ray (named by a volunteer in memory of her father). When Billy Ray was born, Apple naturally became protective of her new son, and big sister White Heart helped to take care of her baby brother by standing close and watching over him. It has truly been a life changing experience to watch this family living together, loving and caring for one another. They are a family unit, and they will spend their lifetimes here, safe and free at SASHA Farm.
