One of our colleagues recently relayed the following Christmas story to me, which I thought was really typical for kids of food animal parents. It involves her 3 year-old son. Two of his favorite things are animals and big trucks. So, he was really excited when Santa brought him a toy farm including cows and horses and a big garbage truck complete with a dumpster bin and a motorized lift. Mom says, "we had to laugh when he started using the garbage truck as a rendering truck by putting the cows and horses in the dumpster and then dumping them in the truck. He also likes to feed the cows to his 2 ½ foot tall T-rex dinosaur, which he's named Vikki."
