|Look at that nose! Macy, the pig, so sweet and peaceful, relaxing in the barn, out of the hot sun.|
Below is Pinto. He is a rescued dairy cow. He was unlucky enough to be born a boy on a dairy farm, where boys are either left for dead, or swiftly whisked away from mom and sold to the veal industry, which was Pinto's fate. A brave soul stepped in to save him, and he now lives a happy healthy life at the sanctuary. He stands over 6 feet tall at the shoulders and weighs in at over 3000 pounds. He is still a young man, at only 6 years old.
|Sweet Pinto takes a moment away from his lunch to allow me the honor of giving him a love rub right on the face.|
My mom had an inspired day as well. Though she didn't turn vegan overnight, she certainly became much more aware of some of the attrocities that occur on factory farms and it made her really think. I encourage all of you to visit, volunteer, or donate to a farm sanctuary. The work they do is so important.
In honor of all of the animals and wonderful volunteers and staff at the sanctuary, I am going to give a farm sanctuary tshirt and water bottle to one lucky reader. Enter the giveaway on the widget below.
