They had rescued him from a slaughterhouse, where his mother did not survive.
Lewis wasn’t in the best of health when he got to The Gentle Barn.
Lewis’s traumatic birth situation also prevented him from receiving enough colostrum to develop a stronger immune system. He struggled to survive when he developed pneumonia because of this.
They brought him inside their air-conditioned home because they knew he wouldn’t be able to survive in the barn. They will be able to care for him around the clock because he needed a cool, clean environment.
Lewis was only 50 pounds when he was brought in a week later.
He is currently two years old and over a thousand pounds. He is now far larger than Sky.Due to the fact that they are aware of the significant weight disparity between them, they are no longer as physical with one another. They continue to express their affection for one another despite this.
Lewis will lay down on the ground and Sky will be all over him. He’ll lick Lewis and lay down beside him.
