Age: Three years old
Herd Status: Strong little one
Nature: Padma is the smallest ox in size among the eight calves that were rescued from the auction barn in August, 2014. Being a Jersey, he is naturally smaller in size. The other cows and oxen look out for him and he is very much loved and cared for by them. However, when there is fresh hay in the winter, Padma will be pushed aside by the larger members of the herd. He eats his hay after they are finished. Although small he is strong and a determined survivor. As a calf, Padmaganda would be found playing with the other calves, either by chasing them around the barn or by playfully bumping heads with them.
