Piggies! Piggies!

I love baby pigs, they are so incredibly cute! And goats, and sheep and ponies too. My online friend Tim posted a nice farm video that he shot with his HV20:

And his other video is impressive, good work with stop motion animation:

Do you eat meat?

I don’t and I find it frustrating when meat eaters claim to have feelings towards intelligent animals they force to be farmed, abused and then slaughtered.

Nice clips though 😉

Sure I eat meat, first and foremost I am a human animal and I choose to eat what mother nature designed my body to eat. I can try to eat only as much meat as I need, and no more, but I won’t cut it off completely.

That doesn’t mean that I don’t love animals. I adore animals. And that’s not a double standard or hypocritical. I don’t think of food or how to skin them and eat them when I am close to them. I’ve never killed an animal, while I could have (growing up on a village was absolutely normal to grab a chicken, cut its head, put it in bubbling hot water to de-feather it, and then cook it.) But I didn’t do it, because I love hens too and my first pet was in fact a small hen. This doesn’t mean that I don’t eat chicken.

No reason to go off topic btw, vegetarianism was already discussed in my blog in the past.

I like pigs too. Reminds me of my childhood.
I’ve got a little toy piggy sitting on my desk at this very moment, and it says hello to you. 😉

Sorry i didnt think my comments were that off topic. Most of your post appeared to about your feelings towards the animals in the clips.

– I have only been following your blog for a few months although I have gone back and read loads of the previous posts with interest.

I managed a sustainable pasture raised pig farm for a year. I raised lots of baby pigs, and had to slaughter pigs. And I eat pig. The thing is that if you give them the best possible life a pig could ever want (because pigs wouldnt even exist unless we ate them) then it is alot different than eating pigs that were raised in a a concentration/death camp factory farmed situation. This guys pigs probably fall into the organic small family sustainable farm variety, and thats cool with me. I hope to raise berkshire pigs sustainably in the next few years. Thanks for finding the vid.
