Lady Gevan

Sunday, October 20th, 2013 at 11:38 AM by CALF (Sharon) Gevan the Highlander

Ahhhhhh lady Gevan she is a real angel….Today i felt so down after listening to the calf in the field next to my house crying out for his mum all night
So i stopped to see “gevan” on my way home, she always knows how to make me smile :0)
Theres a lady next door who has a horse that she tends and grooms and i could see her watching me as i groom my lovely moo cow…So sad that i may be considered as odd for loving a cow the way another human may love a horse….So sad that they cannot see it is themselves that are infact ODD that they can love one sentient being yet sit down and dine on the rotting remains of another.

Tonight she ate her treats and listened to me as i talked and told her the sadness i witnessed, how sorry i was that she was not a mother and she listened to me….Every now and again she would “look” right into my soul, she bowed her head in appreciation

When you love a being so much, when you see through Clear eyes with pure heart and mind, you see things and understand things like never before X

By My Side

Sunday, October 13th, 2013 at 11:38 AM by CALF (Sharon) Gevan the Highlander

Today i spent a few hours with Gevan…The little monkey has bust the back of her shed but its no big deal, i’ve called the joiner and he will have to come back and put bigger screws in, but i can see where she has been laid so she obviously loves it

Today i sat in the shed and she was outside, she kept trying to get through the gap she has made to come into the shed with me, but kept getting her horns stuck, i just sat with her and talked to her, every time i looked away from her i could see her looking at me in depth, i mean really looking at me, then she would inch forward to get nearer.
Where ever i went she was by my side, walking up and down the field. I went to get into the car to go and she walked right over looking at me with such a sad look.
Each time i got back out to spend more time with her. :0)
Her puppy dog eyes work a treat.

Today felt different, i could feel a sadness about her, she is my friend, she trusts me, she did so from the day i went to get her.
I look forward to the day i can build a business again i be able to borrow money to get the home where i can open my back door and she is there.
When i left her tonight i was in tears, i waited until the sun started to set and took a few last photos as she walked away from me knowing i was going…when an odd light appeared…

I thought it was just the brightness of the sunset, so i changed angles, but there was a strange orb like shape that was still moving even though the camera was still. I held the camera perfectly still but could see the light shape moving and it kept moving until it reached gevan…I tried it a few times and each time the glowing light kept moving until it reached her

Adopt Gevan

Friday, October 11th, 2013 at 11:37 AM by CALF (Sharon) Gevan the Highlander

Gevan checks out her new shed and does a happy dance all around the field.
We had this shed made a few weeks ago with the last of gevans money that was raised when we rescued her, plus we had to use some of the money that was left over from vegans vet bill towards it, it cost more than we expected coming in at around £700 but its money well spent as she is worth every penny, but sadly thats all her money gone now with no reserves for the foot care that she will need throughout the rest of her life.
If you can help with a monthly donation please do, we still need to get a few bits for her to get ready for more foot care
Please use the donation link if you can spare a few pound a month or a one of donation, Gevan is also up for best friend adoption…Every penny goes to gevan

My Giant Teddy Bear

My giant teddy bear “gevan”
today she was so funny, we went to move her grazing area so that she could start to use her new shed :0) with the weather getting a bit horrid…
We had to section her in a smaller area whilst we worked on moving the electric fence.
I gave her her treats then i walked into the area that i normally put her a bale of hay for our playtime…but today the game changed as i needed her to let us get on, so i put her another bucket of treats there instead..
She came charging through like a race horse, then stopped looking all confused in mid track when she realised that there was no hay bale, just a bog black bucket….Confused she ran back to the start position, i called her and again she bolted accross the field, this time when she got to her treat bucket she head butted it with her horns like she would with the bale lol
She thought i had changed the game to a bucket instead of a bale….She was very surprised though when she realised the bucket was full of treats..
Bless her, she loves life and the fun and games we play :0)

HAY Presto

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 at 11:34 AM by CALF (Sharon) Gevan the Highlander

I’ve not seen Gevan for a few days as i have been bookwork busy..but today i just had to go and see her..

As soon as i called her she darted her head in my direction, yet she pretended she was not bothered and got slowly to her feet, she headed my way trying to look cool and not really bothered, but i could just see the happiness in her eyes as her hair blew in the wind showing her sweet face and expression

She ate her treats all nice and calm

She stood so still and enjoyed every minute of a good brush down

Then she transformed into a playful teddy bear, as i went to get her a bale of hay, she could not contain her excitement and start to run, knowing what was coming

And this is our Gevan running after me, she was buckarooing and side kicking, her hair fully blowing back to show her cheeky face lol
