Goat feeds farmer milk, keeps him warm for five days

While doing his daily farm work, Farmer Noel Osborne was accidentally knocked into a pile of manure, shattering his hip. He was rendered immobile and stranded too far away for anyoneto hear his calls for help.For five days, his goat Mandy huddled by his side keeping him warm, even throughout stormy, cold nights. Perhaps more remarkably, Mandy allowed Osborne to milk her for sustenance.

These are great stories. I wish more people would read them. Maybe then they'd realize that these "dumb" animals with no feelings are as smart and as compassionate as we'd like to be.

For the love of animals! Look what they do for us and sadly what we coldly do to them.

Touching stories. There are a lot of others that could be added, I guess. We should take a leaf out of their book!
