Pete & Bovalene

This is a photo of Pete the horse and Bovalene the heifer.

Both animals came to me four years ago, from the Alberta SPCA, after being starved nearly to death. Pete was two years old at the time, and Bovalene was just one month old.

I worried about Bovalene not having a bovine companion, but noticed that Pete was very interested in her. After she was a little older and healthier, I took Pete from his horse buddies and put him in with her.

They immediately became inseparable! They ate together, groomed each other, slept together, and chased each other through the fields!

They developed a very strong bond, and to this day, Bovalene would rather be with Pete, than with her bovine companions!
