Motorcycle Travel Series by @velimir 'The herd' (Part #196)

in adsactly •  4 months ago

The winter is awesome. I don't remember riding in January and having such great weather. However, it is that time of the year when a person needs to slow down and enjoy peace and calmness of once's home. But, I'm not sure that I can do that when the sun is shining and the road is clear. Well almost clear!

The lady tells me about her sheep and goats. As you can see, she caters for a little herd of her own. The prices of goat cheese have gone down with all the industry and imports. She points out that it is not profitable to make cheese anymore. Really sad. Industry and cheap imports are killing these poor simple people who struggle hard to make a living off their land and animals.

Not to mention the quality and health benefit of real farm food against cheap concentration camp-like cattle industry produce full of God knows what chemistry, pharmaceuticals, growth hormone, GMO-feed and all the rest of that poisonous mix, we don't want to know about but rather stay ignorant than angry.

I cannot resist photographing these guys up close. They are quite tame but I still need to catch up with them. After running after the herd for a while, I figure out it is the best to stand still and let their curiosity bring them closer. And, indeed, in less than a minute they come close enough for their portraits to be taken. :D

I don't eat meat for 20 years now and I don't miss it one bit. On the contrary, I cannot imagine myself chewing on some old long frozen dead animal. It saddens me that these guys will likely end their lives in a stew or on the spit. However, it is my free choice and everyone has their own. A though choice, living in a country where people eat meat every day and the traditional cuisine is not possible without all the various animals parts one can imagine.

However, I am not one of those guys that you take for dinner and end up listening about how "we should all..." Nope. I strongly believe in freedom for each individual to make his own decisions. I am happy with everybody eating whatever their heart desires. So next time you start hearing about "we should all...", "the carbon footprint...", "meat is unhealthy...", "how can you eat that...", "eating meat is a murder...", and all the rest of veggie-nazi repertoire that nobody really wants to hear, tell your favourite veggie to stfu and continue eating your meal in peace! :-)

Even these sweet little guys if the fate brings them to your table. :D

Enjoy your day! :-)

·

·

yeah right ,,, nice reply for these.....

They almost look like fireworks. Well done!

·

I agree with you. I think so

·

Isnt winter starting to look more like summer? I mean there is no snow fore some regions and sun almost everywhere.

Thanks for the interesting post and lovely pictures of this sweet animals.

I really respect your attitude friend, the combination of being a fierce veggie and also a fierce believer of freedom (a postmodern? I'm still not sure) is kinda rare and I respect it. I, as a person that eat meat - think that people that do eat meat shouldn't ignore the animals welfare during their life before they get to your plate, we should strive for the maximal achievable conditions so they suffer less.

It's really sad to hear about the story of the former cheese makes, in my country we experience much the same thing, the local milk industry is facing a government led import flood, right now they are holding on but in not sure if they will be able to stand it for much longer.

yes...it's all over the world. maybe this is the solution: (https://steemit.com/adsactly/@adsactly/adsactly-on-adsactly-part-26) :D

Well, gotta read it soon then 🤗

I understood it :) do you eat eggs and milk?

you like the very sunny weather, and nice landscapes, I enjoy what I've seen, in particular, because every day outside my window is cloudy and dirty.
Natural products without chemicals will always have a high price and will be more useful for health, farming is difficult, but this is a noble cause.
You parvy everyone is free to choose what he likes to eat. Food is a purely personal preference, which should not be imposed by someone. As the saying goes: "There is no dispute about tastes"
Thank you:)

·

absolutely!

goats and sheep interested in posing: D
very beautiful shot and lovely moment! In my playlist : Animal stories about love and family :)
I need to congratulate the models first :)
nice weather!
and I find your thoughts sensible.
we must consume the products we enjoy from the food. My brother, vegan!
and I do not complain about eating at the same house :)
I'm sorry for my bad english. !

thanks for sharing..

·

I like when people comment even more if they struggle with English. it means they took extra time to speak their mind :)

Freedom for each individual is cool, no one loves to be tie to or with.
Thanks for sharing well put together write-ups.

The photography and write up are so well placed, your photography skills are awesome and yes everyone should eat what their heart desires.

Hey, @velimir, This series is just awesome. All the pictures of these goats so good.
Thanks for sharing.

Its too hot in Croatia right now. I expect February to be super cold :/

In fact, during the winter season, the livestock are very hard and the lower classes also suffer a lot because the lower classes always have to care for the livestock.

freaking awesome dude @velimir ! I wish I had a bike like yours man! Lets see if steem can help a bit with that and travel the world taking pictures like you do...couldnt imagine a bigger feeling of freedom! really admire your stuff man!

Im also into photography... check one of my latest compilations I did in Seville, which is a MUST city to go with your bike in case you dont know it! hahaha Your support will be highly appreciated mate! Greetings from Spain! :)

The government should take a cue in this case, should the weakened people not get worse.
