    Last week Daryl from the Help Alberta Wildies Society posted a video he took while him and a couple of friends of his from Germany were visit a pair of colts they rescued last month, and are now living on a farm with nurse mares, who are basically their foster moms.

    Just out of curiosity, have any of you guys started following any of the sanctuaries I've been posting stuff from on social media? The algorithm on IG has been hiding more and they're all desperately trying to raise their visibility. If you haven't please do, they all great stuff and can use all the support they can get.
    Tahlia from All Seated in a Barn posted this yesterday

    I had heard about this whole Donkey skin tea thing, but I had no idea it was this bad until I saw this.
    And I'm sorry, but tea made from the skin of a dead animal just sounds disgusting to me.

    Bowie at Happy Hearts Happy Home is HUGE.


    This is Swift and Cassidy from Skydog Sanctuary in Oregon.

    Petey got to try some Mango ice yesterday.


    Tahlia from All Seated At a Barn is back in Bowie for this month's livestock auction, and put together a video showing some of what's going on there.

    Most of these horses and donkey, the ones that aren't bought by the ASIAB team or individual people, will be bought by kill pens and will ship to Mexico on Monday to be slaughtered, and will probably won't live very long after that.
    They also have a writer & photographer from National Geographic with them this weekend, and they will be posting an article about the auction and the horse industry in a couple weeks. The story was originally supposed to be part of a big horse industry magazine coming out next year, but they've changed their minds and decided to post this story online instead.

    I feel kind of bad, but I've stopped following and supporting the sanctuary my mom and I visited earlier this year. She's just getting way to many animals, she's got them in her fairly small backyard, and she just keeps getting more and more, and in the last video she posted it's just getting way too crowded. And something else my mom point out that I didn't really notice when we visited, since it was nice out, is that she has barely any shade for them.

    When I was a teen, I had a pet rat. I know many people cringe, but, I love animals, they all deserve to be loved. He was really smart and fun and clean. My mom was never a ray lover, but, even she thought he was cute, except the tail lol

    Yeah, domesticated rats are great pets. My family has had rats off and on since I was a kid. They're really smart, and very trainable.
    There was a show on Animal Planet a few years ago following a group of people training to be zookeeper and the first animals they worked with were rats, and they trained them to do all sorts of fun stuff.
    I hadn't been posting about them much, but I have been seeing the horses on my bike rides a lot the last week, and there were a couple new horses out with the regulars the last couple days. One was tan with a part black part white mane, and I absolutely love multicolor manes, and the other really light tan almost white. The light one was super friendly, as soon I got near the fence yesterday they shoved their very muddy nose into my chest. I'd also gotten hugs from one of the others on Friday, so by the time I made it home yesterday, I had mud all over the front of my shirt, I was gonna take a picture of it, and post it buy my mom washed before I got a chance.

    For those of you who eat meat and have kids, do your kids know that their meat comes from animals? I'm not asking to shame anybody or anything like that, I was just curious.
    A while back my mom told me a story from one of Todd at Arthur's Acres post, and I got thinking about it again today. He was giving a family a tour of the sanctuary, and the kids were talking about how much they love pigs, and then asked if they like bacon or pork or something like that, and they said they love it, and he started to explain that that stuff came from pigs, and the mother got absolutely furious, because she didn't want the kids to know it came from pigs. Which to me is kind of a weird attitude, especially since part of the whole reason places like Arthur's Acres do public tours like that, is to educate people on exactly those kinds of things.
