Animal Abuse

As I sit here and fight the sleep from my eyes, I stumble upon a post that touches my heart.
This is how I feel.
It makes me sick that animal abuse is so widely spread.
But good animal husbandry is dismissed and ignored, by the larger public.
Please read her post.
I CARE about Animal Abuse
It's true 95% of ranchers and farmers do the right thing and go to the extreme sometimes of keeping their animals alive.

I've been raised with lambs, calves, chicks, puppies, kittens, all in the mudroom of my mothers house when they weren't doing good or needed a warm place to stay.
And my mother doesn't allow any animal in the house...believe me.

A couple of years ago my dad had a calf that had a messed up/broken back.
He fed that calf night and morning on the bottle.
Made sure it had fresh hay and water.
He helped that calf survive to be 6 months old.
Then the calf decided to pass on.

Is that animal abuse or is that pure love?
95% of ranchers are like this.
We don't beat our animals.
We don't starve our animals.
We don't abuse our animals.
They are our lively hood.
We love them just as if they were our own children.

Just a thought.
Oh and guess what, all our calves so far are red, except one white one...interesting huh?
Have a good one!
