Rainbow shines through adversity at Edgar’s Mission

Popular Stories

When Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary at Lancefield rescued a young severely injured cow, the initial thought was she might not walk, however it turns out that a glimpse of hope is all she needed.

Named after the colours that shone on the day of the rescue, Rainbow was able to take her first steps thanks to the Lancefield sanctuary.

After 26 days of rehabilitation and heavy-duty assistance, the heifer was able to look at a brand-new life.

Founder and director Pam Ahern said it was clear the cow had been down for some time considering she could not move when found.

“She was emaciated and anemic, covered in pressure sores and lice, with an ulcer plaguing her left eye,” she said. 

“As sweet Rainbow felt the soil beneath her feet for the first time since her arrival, she slowly drank it all in with all of her senses.”

Ms Ahern said Rainbow still had quite a while to go, but her new adventure was an example of determination at the barn.

“They say that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. All we have to do is have the courage and conviction to take that first one,” she said.

“Our barn will forevermore carry her indelible hoof print of determination in the face of adversity.”
