A little help from my friends
The Saving of The Bulls

For those of you who have been following the story of the three bulls who were to be sold to slaughter, we've got some good news for you: The money was raised, and Pooka Cow, Spotty Friend, and Less Spotty Friend are now safe in the care of Jodi and her husband! The three bulls were able to spend Valentine's Day out to pasture where they belong, rather than en route to a slaughterhouse.

Jodi has informed us that, all told, over 100 people donated in one way or another to make it happen. It's a significant sum to raise in just under two weeks, and just goes to show how many of us truly value the life of each and every creature. She'll be keeping us all up to date on the cows' progress and wellbeing on her This Is It! Creations blog.

This past Saturday was indeed a joyous day for that now somewhat larger family. The new cow parents have dived headfirst into a crash course on bovine care. Says Jodi: "If you had asked us a few weeks ago whether we would be cow parents today, I would've just laughed. You never know what turns life will take, that's for sure!"

Feeding and care of the three bulls is a significant investment, so the couple is grateful to continue to receive any donations through the established ChipIn widget or site. As usual, Jodi's sentiments sum it up best:

We are now the proud parents of these sweet boys, and we are thrilled that they will be able to live out their lives... I promise that I will keep you all updated - for now we are just going to focus on taking care of them and trying to raise enough money to make sure they have everything they need.
Spoken like a true cowmama. :)


  1. With all the things that are going wroing in this world, it sure is soothing to the soul and reassuring in the human race, that love and kindness and compassion towards all creatures great and small still exists.

    Lovely story. Thank you very much! God bless you for all you do!

  2. thank you so much to everyone who helped save these these three lads!
    I agree wholeheartedly with Doris!

  3. So so happy that the money was raised, and I wish the new parents the best of luck in learning about the care of these guys and in continued funds to feed them and keep them in good health. I just love those sweet cow faces, and I love to see the good side of humans for a change!
