Piggy Farm

I had a farm. We raised pigs and I loved them. That mother pig killing her baby was because he couldn't survive and thrive. We have given mouth to mouth to save our babies but sometimes they die and you cry. I always did. When we got our first pig and I realized their intelligence and individual personality I became a vegetarian but on doctor's insistence had to go back to meat although I am not thrilled with it. I loved all my farm animals who were part of my family.

Beautiful and heart breaking.

I allowed my 5 and 7 year old to watch it and they made it about 5 minutes in before begging me to change it. I think it’s more appropriate for teens. Loved the documentary. Hauntingly beautiful with a tragic ending. Now my husband and I are considering becoming vegetarians.
