Blog of the Week - A Brief Update, and a Rant about Humans' Farm Animal Attitude

Being nearly technologically illiterate, I am still struggling with removing photos that no longer seem to be there, and replacing them with photos in the spaces that I want to have photos.  Never mind.  I am still trying to figure it all out.  I will do my best.  That's the update.

One of my pet peeves is when I hear folks express that sheep are stupid.  Have you ever noticed that animals raised for food are regarded as "stupid"?  "Sheep are stupid.  Cows are stupid.  Chickens are stupid.  Turkeys are stupid.  Oh, but dogs and horses, not only are intelligent but they have psychic abilities."  Food animals are NOT stupid.  Sheep are actually quite wily and intelligent, as I have good experience to know.  I don't know much about cattle, but certainly cows know enough to hide their calves, protect them from predators, find food and water, and figure out electric fencing.  I think folks have the attitude about farm animals being "stupid" in order to justify eating them, and to justify cruel factory-farm and slaughter house practices.  Let's treat our animals humanely, with dignity that they AND we deserve.  Respect them for what they provide for us.  That's the rant.
