Just saw Food, Inc., the documentary and it was very educational and painful to see how the animals are treated. What do you think of this movie? I feel movies like this should be mandatory in schools. Wouldn't that be amazing! But, the powers that be have too much money and power to let that happen. I'm thinking about how to start my own "cinema" and show enlightening movies.

This is very sweet. I love animals and I think that talking about their bonds with eachother really shows that they "feel" and validates their need to be treated humanely. Thank you for sharing. In the same light of what you are showing, I saw a documentary on elephants, once, and it was amazing to see how they are so bonded and watch out for eachother. The band of elephants surrounds the birthing mother to support and protect her. And in part of the show, when an older female was dying, the band surrounded her and touched her with their trunks and there were tears falling from their eyes. They protected her until the end. It is tragic how much ignorance and cruelty is placed on animals from human beings. Bless you.

I JUST LOVE YOUR FARM and especially Susie Custon!!! I wish every woman in the world would be like her! (My feeling arouses ofcourse from her relationship to animals and her huge carisma)

Thanks for the story Susie ! it is so encouraging and rewarding to see all the work you guys are doing at Farm Sanctuary. I hope my friends in USA will feel like going to visit you. There is no doubt that your videos are useful to share in France. FM is linked on my vegan recipes website (in French)


I love this. So many folks still believe that animals have no sense of compassion or "love" towards each other. This reinforces that animals can feel and develop strong bonds with each other. Plus, the goats! SO CUTE! I keep hoping to see Mr. DiMaggio in a video, I miss his cute face :)


What great stories Suzie! Thanks for all you do!! I've got to get up to Farm Sanctuary for another visit, it's been so long and I've been away from farm animals for far too long!!
