The dictionary definition is: a place of refuge or safety
Last week I was asked an interesting question by a visitor:
"do the cattle know how lucky they are to be here?"
I wasn't sure how to answer.
At Pleasant Pasture all of their physical needs are well met (okay they are spoiled!), but it is the emotional connection we feel with them and hope they feel with us that is unique.
These cattle are valued for the majestic creatures they are, without needing to 'return' anything to humans. Just allowing us to be a small part of their existence, and the joy of being near and observing their quirky, individual behaviors as they live out their natural lives in peace and safety.
Yes I can now thoughtfully answer - they do know how lucky they are - but so are all of us that have the privilege of being in their presence.
The herd eats tons of hay (literally!), consider a reoccurring donation of $10 a month, it would make a significant difference.
