Sweet Iris still loves to take her afternoon siestas at the house patio.
Iris was less than a day old when we rescued her. She fit in the palm of our hands. We bottle fed her. She lived in our house and was potty trained within hours of being with us. She figured this out on her own. We simple put a litter try in her playpen with her wondering (hoping!) she would know what to do. She did. #SomePig!
We understand eating meat is a part of our culture and many others. The animals (and our son) helped us to ask our selves the question of who was going to decide what would be on our dinner plate: Society or Us. We have been meat free for three years now.
In the fall of 2011, Mike and I moved to a small farm in Central Illinois where we immediately found ourselves rescuing horses. The rescue was not part of our original plan, but we felt the calling while doing a search for a pair of ponies we did plan on caring for on the farm. Since childhood, my entire extended family and I have been horse owners. Mike and I wanted to continue this tradition. Upon searching the internet for a pair of ponies, we were overwhelmed with the number of horses that needed a rescue and/or a home.
