Mama Cow Reunites Baby Cow After Heartbreaking Separation

Watch the sweet moment that this mama cow reunites with her baby cow after a heartbreaking separation.

Maybelle the cow arrived at The Gentle Barn in California alone and depressed. When the trailer doors opened, she seemed very anxious to enter her new home. My heart hurts for the sweet cow.

In her stall and in the fields, Maybelle cried out dramatic moos while pacing. Even after some time of getting used to her new home, Maybelle continued to moo with a purpose. She sounded like she was experiencing pain, but she didn’t have any injuries.

Ellie Laks founded The Gentle Barn more than 20 years ago to rescue animals. Jay Weiner volunteered a few years later and eventually teamed up with Ellie to devote themselves to improving the lives of animals.

Once their health improves, rescued animals join the others that greet children almost every day. The nonprofit has another location in Tennessee and one more in Missouri.

In her experience, Ellie knew that when a cow cried like that, it usually missed a baby that got separated from it. Nothing would heal Maybell’s pain except seeing her baby again.

When the rescue picked Maybelle up from her previous farm, the owner said she didn’t have a baby. Jay returned to the farm to find out if there was a baby that was left behind and... there was! Maybelle’s baby was still there!

The previous owner planned on keeping the baby, but they must’ve come to an agreement because the calf was on its way to mommy! Jay called Ellie to let her know that baby was coming back with him, and she immediately started crying. I’m so excited that happy tears are already forming.

As soon as the truck pulled up, the two cows began to call out for each other non-stop. Maybelle’s baby ran off of the trailer to reunite with his mama.

Ellie said, “They walked away together and have been inseparable since.”

The love that a mama has for her baby is a wonderful thing. Hug your mama the next time you see her and remember everything that she’s done for you.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Proverbs 31:28–29
