Pasado's Safe Haven
Youth Blue Sweatshirt
Created to honor our charming 2,700-pound gentle giant named Blue, this stylish lightweight sweatshirt will keep your little one cozy all year long. Featuring 4.5-ounce, 50/25/25 poly/combed ring spun cotton/rayon.
We rescued Blue as a baby in 2008 after he was discarded from the dairy industry. Like all male calves born on dairies, Blue was taken from his mother right after birth so the milk she was producing for him could be sold to humans. Since then, Blue has been a beloved part of our herd. His size shocks many visitors, as Holstein steers like Blue rarely live long enough to reach adulthood and their full size. At over 6 feet tall, he can look intimidating. But he's the sweetest animal, often referred to as our grass puppy.
Blue was recently diagnosed with Bovine Leukemia Virus, which infects 30-40% of the cattle population in the US. There is no treatment for BLV, but we are doing everything possible to keep him comfortable. While we don't know how long we have with Blue, we are making every day count for this sweet, gentle giant.
