For us our animals are family, and they are good partners. We are aiming for self-sufficiency and it is important for us to protect aboriginal breeds. It is our dream once the barn has been renovated to have a Finnhorse and an aboriginal Finnish cow. At the moment we have chickens native to Finland, Åland sheep, cats as well as dogs.
Sometimes the presence of another human is simply too much. Then the presence of animals and their care is irreplaceable. An animal does not judge, it does not require anything, it does not blame. When you pet it and look into its eyes, the endorphin storm it creates is like no other.
