Regrann from @melbournesheepsave - This baby was found in country Victoria not far from her dead mother, whose eyes had already been picked out by crows. We don't know how long her mother or her dead sibling, pictured here, suffered before they died. Deaths such as these are all too common on farms.
What we do know is that the little girl in this photo was innocent. The pitiful sight of a newborn baby cuddled up to her dead sibling for warmth and company just so she wasn't alone brought tears to the eyes of her rescuer. "Farmers have a right to make a living"
"People have the right to eat what they want" - words we hear all too often.
We ask you today - what about the rights of the innocent victims? What about the rights of babies, such as this lamb, who have no choice as to the world they are born into?
They have no choice but we do. We can choose to contribute to the suffering of these innocent victims or we can choose to live a more compassionate life. The choice is up to each one of us.
Which one will you choose?

Baby number two was born last night. Amazing to watch from the beginning to end. There’s a back story to these two births and why they’re actually miracles. A couple of years back when my idea of farming was chewing on a strand of hay and whittling sticks, we purchased a small flock of Dorper sheep. I was told at the time they were ‘about’ 3 years old. We had the vet over two weeks ago due to a prolapse as a result of a pending birth and was told that these two mums were way past the age for giving birth. I know now, that sheep are aged by the amount of teeth they have. These two had none left.... The prognosis was not good as being old & not able to process their food properly it was feared they would not have the energy to go through labour. This made my heart sink & (for those of you that know me) my blood boil. The last couple of weeks have been spent loving these old gals. Glucose injections, house made energy mix, electric netting, lots of straw bedding and a comfy place to rest/give birth. They are such troopers, the most excellent mums/grandmas. They did what they do knowing they might not make it. Such resilience. Humans on the other hand are a species unto their own. My inexperience & dumbness is no excuse for pure deception & lies. No guesses as to my preference of species. I’ll see them in the after life. These two awesome mums will enjoy their last set of babies before they’re retired to relax into their twighlight years. #farmlife#dorpersheep#babies#lambs#lambing2018#selfsufficient#permaculture#lilacres
We had A sheep (a gas station rescue sheep)...now we have sheep and I’m thrilled. The lambs still aren’t our biggest fans but they love Bah-Bah and Panda and that’s all that matters. Do you have livestock? Have you heard of Chaffhaye? It’s a fermented nongmo alfalfa and everyone on the farm loves it, including the dogs...go figure 🤷🏼♀️
