We all love animals.  Why do we call some "pets" and others "dinner?"  k.d. lang

This webpage is an introduction to a section of photographs that I hope will portray the fact that farm animals just like any other animal are beautiful creatures. Few people, even those who call themselves animal lovers, really appreciate what beautiful creatures farm animals are both physically and emotionally, sadly only seeing them as a source of food and clothing. But farm animals, just like your cat or dog, are sentient beings with their own personalities who will respond to you given the opportunity. And just like your cat or dog, or your pet budgie they feel pain, both physical and emotional, and are aware of what is happening to them and interact with their environment.

The idea of this website is to make people think differently about farm animals and I hope that this gallery of photographs will help you to see what wonderful and indeed beautiful creatures farm animals are.  It is my sincerely hope that realizing the innate beauty of these creatures may play some small role in making people think differently about our relationship with these animals, and to see them as feeling thinking beings with the right to live out their natural lives in peace, free from exploitation and abuse of any kind.
