Dog Watches Over Calf He Raised

Grace Higgins | July 14th, 2019

Lincoln the Australian shepherd takes his job of big brother very seriously. He doesn’t seem to mind (or notice) that his little brother is a cow, not a dog. The calf arrived at the Black Goat Farm and Sanctuary located in Ontario, last summer. Since then, Lincoln has never left the side of the calf, whose name is Calvin. Lincoln was very protective of the calf, who was saved from a dairy farm because he was going to be shipped off to be slaughtered, which is typically the practice on a dairy farm. But the people on the farm wanted Calvin to have a different fate, so they contacted the sanctuary to raise him. He was so thrilled to be on the farm the moment he stepped foot off of the trailer and onto the grass of the sanctuary.

He spent some time running around and soon he met his new best friend: Lincoln. The dog was there to run around with his cow friend and the pair were even known to take long afternoon naps together. Lincoln decided that Calvin the cow was his responsibility, which the cow loved because he had been taken from his mother at such a young age. It has now been year since Calvin the cow arrived at the sanctuary and things have changed for him. He is no longer a little calf that is around the same size as his friend Lincoln. He is now a very large cow, but that does not seem to affect either of the animals, who still spend plenty of time together each day.

These days, Lincoln can be found watching over his cow brother as he grazes in the field. It is not all serious, however: the pair still enjoy romping around the pasture together and even grabbing a quick snooze together too.
