As a male calf born on a small cattle farm in France, Aston was originally destined to be slaughtered for meat, but after forming a bond with a horse trainer he became a showjumping bull instead.
He developed a connection with Sabine Rouas, a local horse trainer, and that is how Aston escaped the slaughterhouse. He might have been lucky, or it was meant to be for him.
She liked the newborn calf and they developed a bond that has lasted to today. From the bond, she felt obliged to save Aston from the slaughterhouse and convinced the farmer to sell her the calf.
