Misty (at Good Acres in 2021)
Misty was born in 2019 at a commercial Angus cattle farm. Due to the fact that she was born blind, the owners of the farm gave her special care and quickly became attached to this sweet girl. However, the cattle farm did not have facilities or pastures suitable for a disabled animal like Misty and had to keep her in a stall most of the time which just wasn't a good solution for her. In March 2021 they asked if Misty might be able to move to Good Acres. We said YES! In addition we negotiated that her young friend Spark would get to come along with Misty. All was agreed on quickly and Misty and her little friend arrived at the sanctuary on March 19, 2021.
Misty was one of the sweetest most gentle souls you will ever meet. She loved to be loved on, get brushed, and cuddled. We outfitted a barn and corral especially for her and her special needs.
Unfortunately, Misty suffered from recurring seizure-type episodes that we could not cure no matter what we tried. We had to let her go to heaven in June of 2021.
