Repost By @gnarbivore: Don't believe the hype!
Meat, dairy and egg manufacturers put a lot of time, effort and a LOT of money toward making us believe that the animals they're farming (exploiting) are living happy, healthy and cruelty free lives.
Every animal, no matter the amount of land they're granted, no matter what they're fed, no matter how many hugs and kisses they receive or how long humans allow them to live... All of these animals end up hanging from a hook in a slaughterhouse.
I raise a human child, give it love and care, house it, feed it, bath it and cloth it. I grant this child a wonderful joyous life...
One day I march the child out of its home, into the unknown and away from where it feels safe. I put the child in the trunk of my car crammed in with several other children I have raised with love and care. I drive in the heat of the day for hours. The children need to use the bathroom but I don't have time to stop. I arrive at my destination where the children begin to hear the desperate cries of other children. I prod and poke, smack and yell at the children to force them into a dark room that stinks of fresh blood. Each child is taken one by one toward the same door they've watched the previous child enter, never to return. I place a gun to the top of each child's head and pull the trigger... Just because someone lives a beautiful, fun and happy life does not justify terrorising them for any period of time, no matter how short or painless. The sentient beings that humans pay to have slaughtered on their behalf are fully aware of the horror that awaits them. Their fellow victims screams and the stench of death warns them.
Simply ending the life of a being that wants to, and has the will to live is cruel enough.
Truely go cruelty free, go vegan.

The closer we are to winter, the richer the Nubian goat milk gets. This cream probably has more than 70% fat. Most of it turns into butter when churned and only a few drops of buttermilk are left.
We’re doing an extended lactation this year. To learn and to not produce so many kids that go to slaughter. Our goats don’t seem to mind much. Though they do complain about the lack of a stinky buck 🤭
These felt animals are adorable this Christmas - can anyone give any name suggestions for this happy little fox?
They look great when hung from their brown twine to create a lovely woodland effect around the Christmas tree 🌲
My dream is slowly becoming a reality. It's going to be hard and it's going to take some serious planning and organising but soon this piece of land will be blooming and bringing joy to Central Otago community.
I'm going back to studying too. Thank you @floretflower for organising the most beautiful course material I've ever seen. It will not only be interesting to study but also motivating.
First step is done, land has been sprayed out and soon we'll start digging her over and fertilizing ready to start planting in March.
Peonies root stock have been ordered too.
Fingers crossed I'll be harvesting assorted lovely blooms from August next year. .
