…hoof insight…

Posted: 24 July 2013

…we talk often these days about “carbon footprints ” so let’s make that user friendly with this thought ” vegan footprint “…looking at all the bare Summer feet one can’t help but notice the many hooves there are out there trying to dress themselves up in nail polish and vibrant flip flops and string sandals…but really many of those feet should be kept under wraps as it were…all that brie and bread and those lattes and cream buns ( and that includes rear ends people ) and stacks of pancakes dripping with butter is creating those hooves…I call them hooves because that is exactly what they look like…callouses, terribly cracked heels encased in indissolvable hard skin, corns, bunions, thick hardened nails, skin that would scrape the hide off an elephant no matter how much lotion you use…and no all of that is not simply a product of “old age ” it is a product of dairy meant for growing yup you guessed it horns and hooves…its not for us babes!…the body cannot utilise nor eliminate animal products effectively….and so the bod will dump stuff wherever it can the furthest away from the heart…the feet are handy for that..and the ankles are included…swollen ankles and gout are not the unavoidable fact of growing older…they are the animal’s revenge….in the movie “The Four Feathers” there is a scene where the rescuer, and true friend, admonishes the rescuee and soon to be hero of the story with words that say…you English walk too proudly on the earth…yes…the stewardship is meant to be just that stewardship not exploitation…those feet should still be dancers feet as they were when we were little children…Margot Fonteyn’s feet were so painful with arthritis towards the end of her career…carcase intake…I have to tell you that vegan feet are beautiful even at the age of sixty…I have been stopped in Italy by a woman who wanted to photograph my feet…not a hoof insight either!¬†…p.s. research chemical free nail polish too…avoid putting anything on your bod that you can’t also eat because it all finishes up in your ¬†blood…
