Circle of Life

So we lost one of our almost 4 week old kits tonight. 
We just buried it in the garden.

Its a very interesting talk to have with your 5 year old about how animals and people decompose and become part of the soil and can support another life by becoming food for a plant. As a girl who has started her life with very strange urban farming parents Brooke is very accepting and understanding of how things like this can happen. She also understands that we eat some of our animals and while it may be a little sad they pass on to another very important part becoming our sustenance and or this we are truly thankful and appreciative of every animal we have. 

The amazing circle of life!
