Jack Daniels, also known as Jack and JD, was rescued when he was just three days old. He was chained to a wall and standing in his own filth, unable to move around or lie down. The farmer believed he was blind and planned to send him to slaughter the next day. Luckily, Road To Refuge Animal Sanctuary and Sleepy Pig Farm Sanctuary stepped in and rescued JD and another calf, Redding. Redding was given a forever home at Sleepy Pig Farm Sanctuary. JD, who was very ill, went to live at Road To Refuge Animal Sanctuary. For weeks after his rescue, JD’s health was touch and go. He almost didn’t pull through, and it turned out he was not in fact blind. He was named Jack Daniels because he is as strong as whiskey.
I feel very lucky to have captured this image. JD was almost impossible to capture a portrait of because he tirelessly wanted to run around and try to play with me. But, I was graced with a stroke of luck when he paused for a moment with a leaf in his mouth.
