I've got a couple goats that have been told repeatedly that if they run through my house one more time that their name will be STEW!
All of my animals have warm, dry, cozy shelters, unlimited, clean, heated, drinking water and are fed appropriately. Sir Loin is loved just as much as Maggie even though he is *dinner* and she's the *mother of future dinner*, they both come running when they see me (wonder if the grain bucket has anything to do with that...
) Wilbur and Porky have happy little piggy lives, they have a couple acres to root around in, cows, goats and chickens to visit and lots of fences to mangle and escape from (their latest favorite pastime).
My neighbors tell me constantly how I take better care of my *food* than most people do their pets. Am I going to feel sad when they make a trip to the butcher? Nah.... what on earth would I do with a 300lb pig who is now constantly trying to chew on my boots? It's only a matter of time before he's trying to chew on ME!
