Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Debby Bradford - 24 May 2006
I just found your site, and I am a bit disappointed in that you are only showing the most inhumane practices.
I happen to raise an endangered breed of sheep, when I first started there were only about 400 of them. They are the Navajo-Churro, a very interesting and primitive breed. I shear my sheep, and have many friends with wool sheep who also shear.
We do not practice this practice of mulsing, and know of nobody who does. We are very careful about who we have shear, and we take excellent care of our sheep.
I resent the fact that you are not admiting that there are many people who care about their animals. The wool from our sheep mostly goes to the Navajo traditional weavers who then make blankets and sell them.
This helps them to feed their families. For your information the numbers of Navajo-Churro sheep has now risen to over 3,000. We are helping to preserve this breed. I invite you to visit our place and see the sheep.

Thank you for writing.
We have never said that there aren't a few people who raise sheep and other animals humanely, but the vast majority are raised in the cruel ways we have depicted.
Do you also let the sheep live out their natural lives, or do you slaughter some of them?
In the Love of the Lord,
