...wouldn't it be great to not need rescue groups, animal shelters or humane societies? Wouldn't it be great to not need someone to tell us how to farm, eat, play, or enjoy our animal friends? Wouldn't it be a great new year if all old dogs got homes? Wouldn't it be great__________________________(fill in your blank).
We did our family Christmas photos by the old farm truck and another set out in the bush. Earl built a fire, we had our photos, cleaned up some deadwood and roasted hot dogs for a snack. The cattle and horses eyed the fire and as it burnt down we watched them from the warmth of the house...the horses stood close to the embers for the warmth. The cows sniffed around and then stood heads down over the last bits of the smoke. The cold ashes the next morning showed many signs of curious noses and hooves...used to summer smudges they were very interested in this winter fire.
How are your animals faring? Have you noticed any who are needing some extra care? What were you able to do to help them? Let's make this a year which has fewer animals in need of urgent rescue and a year where more people become educated and proactive when it comes to animal welfare - for all animals, all the time.
