This is what neglect looks like.
Jeanette just could not let her die like this. Unloved.
This is what love looks like.
Jeanette had asked us to take her in 2018 because the vet had said the grass she was on at her home was making Bella’s feet worse. It was a heartwrenching decision, but she came to visit her often, knowing she was in good hands. It was the hardest thing for Jeanette to finally say goodbye to her girl, but after about two years of her hurting with her, and then hurting with us for another year, it was time to let her go. She was lovingly and gently euthanized by our veterinary, in the arms of her loved ones.
Bella became best friends with Dusty from his first day in the herd. Unfortunately, she did not spend too much time in the herd due to her sore feet, which prevented her from getting away quickly if she needed to, due to the pecking order.
Bella never wanted for love. She spent a lot of time laying down due to her sore feet, and loved to sunbath on cool days.
She got a lot of love.
