Animal Sanctuary

We went to the  Farm Sanctuary  in Orland last weekend and spent a beautiful day there. It was so serene. All the animals had been rescued from abusive owners or the slaughterhouse. This is where the happy cows really live in California.

I'd never seen a turkey this magnificent before. 
Beatrix and her cousins had so much fun. Her outfit was comprised of various gifts so I'm not sure of their sources.

The sheep were not as friendly as the goats. I spent quite a bit of time feeding the goats grass. They were incredibly sweet and welcoming. My outfit is a  dress that I found while on vacation in Mendocino. I have amazing memories of wearing it on our recent trip. We watched the sunrise which is was rare and incredible experience for me. The leggings are American Apparel.
Lucas the pig was huge and also very friendly. He, like many of the animals had barely escaped being someone's dinner.



  1. Oh so heartbreaking and lovely all at once! So glad you posted this, very smile inspiring.
