Farm Sanctuary, Watkins Glen, NY

Nancy and i went with a group of animal friendly vegans and vegetarians to Farm Sanctuary, located in Watkins Glen, NY. It is a great place that gives homes to farm animals who have been mistreated and abused because of factory farming practices.

This is Bertha. She had the softest hair on top - this wavy white blonde patch of hair. She was really sweet and greeted us as we approached. The moo was so loud it echoed back at us 3 times.

Now that is a real goatee!

Jennifer and the group check out the turkeys.

This poor guy gets around on a prosthetic leg.

Nancy is petting some of the younger pigs. They were adorable and LOVED to have their bellies rubbed.

Pigs like to sleep too. Look at those little arms! I have video of one of them snoring. Perhaps I'll add it to the post when I figure out how to get the movies off the camera - the disk won't mount.

With a snout like that it is no wonder they can smell things several feet underground.
