No to Veal

My bum knee prevented my normal volunteer gig at SASHA Farm Sanctuary for a bit, but I'm back in the groove now, albeit more sedately.  Upon my return in September, I met the Jersey 5.  You will swoon when you see these faces.  Guaranteed.

At my first meet and greet, this little devil was anticipating his bottle but finding I didn't have it determined my waist pack would make for good nibbling.

Five six-week old boys were saved from the veal industry.  Can you even imagine.

All the volunteers are in love. Selfies are abounding.  
If you eat veal, I would implore you to reconsider.  These boys would have been contained in small veal crates until their slaughter.  Thanks goodness they can now be loved at SASHA. But for the multitudes who don't share that future...

But wait.  The Jersey 5 aren't the only adorables at the Farm.

And you just never know what will appear in the kitchen.

Norman, my favorite SASHA donkey, pouts.  He was not allowed carrots that visit. 

If you'd like to assist SASHA in feeding and caring for those you've met, and those you've yet to meet, please visit their website:


  1. Oh Janet they are SO adorable. I just can't stomach meat now and the way these poor animals are treated deeply upsets me. It's veg and more veg all the way for me. I adore the pigs to. What a marvellous place SASHA is. If I was in the area I would certainly be there volunteering - keep up the good work.

    1. Louise, I'm glad we have that view in common! United in veg. :)

  2. What beautiful little creatures....
