Please meet Thelma one of our rescued Friesian cows, Thelma was heavily pregnant when she was rescued from a closing down dairy farm.
Thelma joined our sanctuary family with another Friesian mum-to-be called Louise, unfortunately both ladies were due to go to slaughter. They arrived at the sanctuary after an hours journey, as the truck drove onto the sanctuary fields we could see their noses through the open slates of the truck. Our Highlands were curious as to who the new arrivals were on the truck as they sniffed the air.
Once pulled up and open Thelma and Louise came off the transport into their forever home. Both Ladies were nervous and timid, Thelma the largest of the two ladies was and still is the most nervous and timid but she is improving day by day.
Since being at the sanctuary Thelma has gave birth to a beautiful boy called Tommy Two Sox. Tommy Two Sox is a curious but timid like his mom, his best friend Charlie Enfys is showing him that he doesn't have to be scared and that humans can be trusted. He is very independent and wonders from his mom Thelma and goes to investigate his surroundings with Charlie Enfys. Every day Thelma is getting braver, she is a fantastic mom to Tommy Two Sox and all four live happily and peacefully together. Thelma is a lucky mom to have the chance to raise her calf in a sanctuary environment where they will both be loved, safe and free, just how it should be and Tommy Two Sox will never know that his fate could have been a completely different story.
