One Sow's son is another man's breakfast

Down the lane from our house is a small farm (only a handful of animals) which the kids lovingly refer to as "the piggy lane" because he farmer keeps pigs there.

From an early age i've tried to explain to the kids where the meat on their plate come's from but i'm still not convinced it's really sinking in (they are very young though) when we see the excited look on their faces when we go see the pigs.

Even the pigs seem excited.. if only they knew!

    Great composition,but I am a vegetarian, so this picture makes me sad.

    This is a great composition and the pigs are so cute...it is sad to know what their fate is and that they are all jammed together in this pen. Makes me think of Orwell's Animal Farm.

    Keep talking and explaining, I had it explained to me when I was 22 and gave up meat at 27. I'm 42 now and count every living soul I didn't eat!

    I'm right with you seanhepburn2006. When you look into an animal's eyes and you see a friend, it's hard to eat them.

    They always look like they are smiling!! Your story made me laugh. When I was young I was asked to gather the eggs from the neighbors chicken coop while they were away. A young friend was staying with us. When we told her we were going to eat those eggs we gathered she said "no thanks, I only eat factory eggs". We were around 11 years old. Still makes me smile.
