Two bovines become fast friends at Farm Sanctuary.

Rescuers worked for almost a month across international borders to bring two blind and aging bovines together. When Sweety, an 8-year-old Canadian cow with a hoof infection, was rescued from a slaughterhouse, the word was spread that she needed a forever home, and hundreds of miles away in New York, her future best buddy, Tricia, was waiting.

Tricia, a 12 year old lonely and anxious cow that lost her companion bovine to cancer recently, called Farm Sanctuary home and was the only bovine at the facility without a partner. Once Sweety arrived at the sanctuary, the two cows got to know each other through mooing from separate stalls, but once they were introduced, it was obvious that love truly is blind, as they wasted no time nuzzling one another and becoming fast friends. Tricia even helped guide the blind Sweety as she made her way around the unfamiliar sanctuary grounds.

Susie Coston, national shelter director for Farm Sanctuary, said, “It was exciting to think that by giving Sweety a new life, we might also give Tricia another chance to enjoy her own.” It is a win-win for both bovines.
