They shouldn’t have lived….Much less thrived.
Thirty three babies… Separated from their mothers, who were all shipped to slaughter….These precious Navajo Reservation faces found themselves on a ‘feedlot’ in Colorado.
Somehow, we pulled it off. These are all safe, paid, and being moved to quarantine for evaluation, handling, vetting, ( and of course a photo shoot!) before being placed into their new homes….one by one.
Thank you to all those who helped make this happen!!!
It was huge…for us, and for them.
The HELL that these babies brought about is unlike any I’ve ever seen. THe fighting, the differing opinions, the hatred…..
To me? Totally worth every bit of it to see them today. All but two have gone on to new homes who adore them and update us regularly.
It was a hell of a thing , indeed. Kick ass, Carters! We’ll love you always.
The crazy part? I’d do it all over again. ❤
We will update about them very, very soon ❤
