She let me talk to her for hours while I worked in the garden, she gave me 6 1/2 yrs of beautiful, healthy eggs to feed my babies, she kept me company early in the morning while I drank my tea and watched the sunrise, she was kind to my children and the other animals here, she was a gift and I will miss her.
She was attacked last night by our neighbors dog, we kept her inside last night wrapped up with us. I got to spend the entire night with her before I had to say goodbye this morning.
Hardest part of living on a farm is when we have to say goodbye to our animal friends. We lost our beloved dog and our friend Oreo in the past few weeks:((
This has been really hard for me and the kids.
What’s on my mind:
Whenever I lose an animal like this I always wonder how it is that people can eat meat three times a day. How a beautiful animal like this can be for sale for 4-5 dollars at the local grocery store and how people can speak the words “it’s just a chicken” I’m sorry if I offend anyone by saying this but I strongly believe that these beautiful animals deserve more than to end up as a 4 dollar rotisserie chicken at our local walmart.
It’s a life..with beauty, kindness and feeling. I know my love for animals may be extreme but so is the horrible way in which these beautiful animals are being treated.
