TWO blind, age­ing cows were 350 miles (650km) apart, dis­tressed and fac­ing a dark fu­ture.

What hap­pened next is a love story star­ring, not cows, but res­cuers who worked across in­ter­na­tional borders for nearly a month to bring the bovines to­gether.

It started when Sweety, an eightyear-old Cana­dian cow with a hoof in­fec­tion, was res­cued from the slaugh­ter­house by a horse sanc­tu­ary in On­tario.

Work­ers at Refuge RR put out the word to the small legion of folks de­voted to sav­ing age­ing

Two blind cows: When the Farm Sanc­tu­ary shel­ter in New york, the united States, tried to help Tri­cia (left) who has been blind since birth, a Cana­dian an­i­mal wel­fare group sent Sweety over from On­tario, via spe­cial trans­port. They have since be­come best fe­male friends and are in­sep­a­ra­ble.
