Bear is one of our three miniature galloway cows, he came in with his younger brother Jackson and his twin brother Fernando. His breed originates in Scotland which means he is very fluffy and soft. They are mostly in Victoria where its a bit cooler, but as they are here at the sanctuary they can be seen in the shade and swimming in the dam all year round.
Bear and his brothers came from a loving family where their previous owners could no longer look after them. They were very worried about where they might end up if they were to sell or give them away, so they made sure they found a safe and happy home with lots of space! We had just moved into our new sanctuary on 33 acres when we heard about the three brothers so we were more than happy to take them! The three brothers were very shy when they first came in, but they are each coming out of their shell slowly.
Bear is a very loving and gentle boy who is slowly starting to trust his human companions. He has been spending more time with the cow team, who are teaching him that people aren’t too scary. Since coming to the sanctuary he has always loved swimming in the dam with Fernando and chin / neck scratches.
